I had fun walking around my house and yard today photographing things that are yellow--and some that are not!  Here are a few yellowy offerings...

My son just graduated from the University of Cincinnati in Mechanical Engineering Technology.  Here are his cap, tassel, and 3 honor cords.  (Yes, we are very proud of him!  4-point-0!  OK.  I just had to say it!)

a branch of a young cedar bush in my front yard.  I love how the gold tips the green.

detail of a tulip bouquet given me by my husband for Mother's Day.

the cord of a compressor that has taken up residence in our hallway for I'm-not-sayin' how long!  Someday, our kitchen chairs will be recovered and this baby can go back home where it belongs!

Buttercups are blooming in my yard.

a yellowing crab apple leaf has fallen to the ground.

Alphabe-Thursday, hosted by Ms Jenny, is so much fun!  This week our letter is "Y." Come visit others' submissions HERE and join in the fun!
