I couldn’t believe my eyes this morning when I woke up to clear skies and an unfamiliar yellow sphere shining down on this little patch of the planet. It feels like an eternity since I last saw sunshine so it was with glee that I leapt out of bed and watched a European goldfinch flit about the garden in a blur of red and yellow.
Fresh from a few blissful golden hours of sunshine, here are some more yellow sights I’ve found along the way. First up, the yellow archway of Arco de Santa Catalina in Antigua.
A vibrant yellow escalator in Seattle’s Central Library. Almost as much fun as following the yellow brick road!
Startling yellow lichen in Pleasant Valley, just before a baby elk had a traumatic encounter with the American River.
A cheeky yellow scooter abandoned on a rooftop in Georgetown.
Well, all trace of sunshine has long since departed and overcast skies are now lashing rain, so I’m going for a quick walk under cover of my cheery yellow umbrella.
