Zinnia in the Garden

I did plant some new zinnia seeds, but some of it is from seeds that resowed themselves from last year. Oh, and I had gathered a bunch of their seeds too and planted them. So I probably hadn’t needed to plant any new ones. And my sunflowers are coming up from the bird seeds. Silly birds. They’re supposed to eat them. So this year, I’ve just let them grow and have a bunch of beautiful sunflowers. I loved the natural bubbly bokeh with this orange zinnia of the light on the flowers behind it.

It’s hot and going to be so all week. With heat reaching 104 degree heat index and the ozone in bad shape–they say it’s dangerous to be out in the sun right now. I try to do all my activities early and late, and get to the writing during the day. Though I didn’t get much done yesterday. Not with my granddaughter being here. We swam for 2 hours, walked, and then stayed inside and read books.

I took my walk this morning and it wasn’t bad. But now I’ve got to get to writing! Oh, I did brainstorm with my friend Donna over the Red Wolf Christmas book last night. I need to get the synopsis and other marketing materials ready by Friday. I won’t have my granddaughter for all of Thursday, so that will give me another half day to work.

Have a happy day!

Yellow Equals the Sun

sunflower just right (640x427)

Like orange, yellow is a vibrant color, and warm, and soft. Here is a giant sunflower I took the picture of it. It lovingly reminds me of my dad who years ago planted the seeds and every year they pop up to fill my heart with joy and remember him by.

love (306x800)Sentiments of love go nicely on this yellow and striped wall, a photo I took when visiting a model home where my daughter and son-in-law bought a place.

The Genie's Wish

a novella

A fun short novella about the Genie’s Wish with a yellow background.

Yellow koi on a cloudy day.

tree in  house (800x663)

And a yellow house, that just makes you smile. Or maybe it’s the tree growing in the middle of it that does!

 

Arboretum 147 (800x642)

A yellow flower at the arboretum. And a voracious yellow bug. See the “artwork” he has done on the flowers?

Arboretum white flowers bug (800x786)

I think of sunshine, heat, warmth, and smiling, outgoing and adventurous. I think of yellow raincoats to stand out on a stormy gray day. Or fishermen back east in their slickers hauling in their catch.

Of course what is the most memorable yellow imagery that you can think of that is part of a famous piece of literature?

And I’m off to write up the new synopsis for A Hero of a Highland Wolf. The final with edits was turned in, but when I write the original synopsis for the books, I have no story written yet. So I have to kind of wing it. My characters often take off in a different direction, and so I always have to go back and rewrite the synopsis in a longer format. *sigh* They are always dreaded. Why? Because I should have written it when I finished the book. But nope, I’ve written nearly 3 since then! 🙂  Which means I can’t remember everything that went on in that story. LOL 🙂

Have a super Saturday!

Oh, wait, remember to tell me what the famous yellow imagery is. 🙂
