Mellow Yellow Monday #174 - Yellow and Purple Beauty - May 21, 2012

I have always loved the combination of yellow and purple - my favorite floral bouquets
are yellow roses and purple irises and, though, I have hinted VERY often, they don't
seem to come my way on a frequent basis.  I guess, partly because, folks also know
that I enjoy a bottle of good wine.  Now, the ultimate gift to me would be a nice wine
AND a bouquet of yellow roses and purple irises.

My lovely daughter-in-law had arranged this simple, but beautiful, bouquet in her home
when I visited last weekend for Mother's Day.  I delighted in it the whole three days I
was there.










I am participating in one of my favorite memes, 
add your bit of yellow and join in the fun!

  2. P.S.: Is the yellow beauty a sunflower?

  3. Isn't it a lovely little arrangement, Merisi...it just goes to show you don't need an opulent grouping to look lovely.

  4. I don't know what the yellow flower is but I don't think it's a sunflower...it was so small.

  7. betchai..my daughter-in-law just informed me that my son, Alex, made that little floral arrangement. I didn't know he was so talented. I told her I guess he was bored from studying all that organic chemistry and physics.
