”Some painters transform the sun into a yellow spot, others transform a yellow spot into the sun.” ~ Pablo Picasso
And would you look at that – who’d have thought it, there’s even a boat named after me!
My battle with pingbacks continues and today my pingbacks are linking to (or not!) Fandango’s one word prompt and also the Ragtag Community as well as our own Weekly Prompts colour challenge Yellow.
Those of us living in Yorkshire know that the colour yellow is pretty dominant in May.
For starters, the landscape around here now has a beautiful vibrant yellow added to the usual patchwork of green.
When out and about for a drive this week, I slowed down to admire the rapeseed plants that were swaying in the gentle breeze on each side of the road, and my daughter Sophie, became my able photographer.
Yesterday Friday 3rd May saw the start of the three-day cycle race Tour de Yorkshire, a wheelie spin-off from the 101st edition of the Tour de France, part of which took place just about on my doorstep here in Yorkshire in 2014.
Tour de Yorkshire began in May 2015 and Just like last year, part of the Tour de Yorkshire takes place on my home ground. Yesterday was the first day of the race and it actually came through our village. Unfortunately, I was away from home for most of the day and was unable to watch the event. Perhaps I might catch the return route on Sunday when the cyclists climb to the top of Otley Chevin at the other end of our lane.
Everywhere we turn there are yellow traffic signs that warn us of the upcoming event, and brightly decorated shop windows have reminded us that the day is almost here. My favourites are the static yellow cycles that are dotted around the villages.
