Our World Tuesday, ABC Wednesday, Y for Yellow

The letter Y is having its turn, but .... it is always a very difficult letter, however I thought by myself:"Why shall I not choose for a simple solution?"So off I go with one simple word! Yellow!" It's a beautiful colour! Very sunny and it makes the world look happy.
But still the word Yellow is often used in an unfavourable way.

Wikipedia:

Yellow journalism, or the yellow press, is a type of journalism that presents little or no legitimate well-researched news and instead uses eye-catching headlines to sell more newspapers.Techniques may include exaggerations of news events, scandal-mongering, or sensationalism. By extension, the term yellow journalism is used today as a pejorative to decry any journalism that treats news in an unprofessional or unethical fashion.


Yellow Fever is a dangerous disease of tropical parts of the world.

 The Yellow Peril was the supposed danger that a large number of people in eastern Asia will take over the western civilizations.




The word Yellow is used in an unfavourable way in all those instances. However, I love this colour! It represents a happy sunny environment. It is the beginning of spring, when the first daffodils are showing their faces. Many spring flowers are yellow!

Beautiful yellow blooms and a great choice for the letter Y! Yellow blooms just put a smile on my face!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Yellow flowers always make me smile -- it is almost my favorite color these days. Never thought about the unfavorable connotations (or the sad historical memories (yellow peril... would like to think that fear such as that was only in the past, sadly that is still true... some people are so afraid of anything or anyone different from themselves) ). Nice research and I learned something as I always do from your posts.

Pretty photos, and yes I think yellow is a happy and joyful color too. I have a wonderful futon covered in saffron yellow fabric and it brightens the room along with a print of Van Gogh's sunflowers. Have a happy week!

Such beautiful shots of so many flowers, my favourite has to be the Chrysanthemum, my Grandpa used to grow them.
We always have lots of yellow Daffodils and Narcissus in our front garden at springtime, so pretty.
Best wishes,

I never really thought about all the negative uses of the word. But it's such a cheerful, delightful color. Beautiful flowers!

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Oh gosh your yellow blooms are just gorgeous! I have often wondered why such a cheerful, sunny, happy word like "yellow" is used as a descriptive for some not so cheerful things. It shouldn't be allowed I say..:)

lindaakacraftygardener said...

Yellow is my favourite colour of blooms and right now there is lots of yellow in the garden. Loved seeing all your yellow blooms.

RamblingRound said...

Wow! I agree, the word, yellow, should never be used with a negative connotation.
