ABC Wenesday: "Y"

I have missed the last two ABC Wednesdays. I wasn't too upset about missing "x" because I couldn't come up with anything creative anyways, but I was really sad about missing "W" because I had some pictures I was dying to show you for "W". I guess I will have to not be on vacation next time W comes around.

This week we have the letter "Y".

Let's start with a smile. This yellow duck was on the back of a hot air balloon at the Blossom Parade on memorial day. I missed the actual launch of the balloons, but most of them came to the parade. It is one of my favorite parts of the whole weekend. Seeing the hot air balloons soaring through through the sky always puts a smile on my face, and this little guy just makes my smile bigger.



Now, for some yellow flowers:

Great duck, that is one yellow item that would be hard not to notice.

That's a great fun duck, and very yellow. Shame about W - you should have put it in anyway! Still, you have it for next time.

Yellow is for me the colour of spring and summer - as for instance right now!

It must be so fun watching those balloons flying in the sky! Cute duck, like the plastic ones my son had to play with at his bath time!
And the flowers are just sweet...
