Mellow Yellow Monday #103 - A Lovely Tree - January 10, 2011

This was taken a few weeks ago but it still beautiful and hasn't lost all its yellow foliage yet!
Our moderate temperatures have really been cooler than usual, though, in the San
Francisco area - it was 44 degrees the other night!  That's cold for here!

I am participating in Mellow Yellow Monday!
Check out the site and join in the fun!


  1. Nice contrast of colours, is that a fruit tree?

    When I watch the American blog included yours, it is healed.
    Japan still wanders in a tunnel for 20 years since a bubble burst.

    The bright impressions are indispensable for the life.
    As for the people, they may someday take the hope not be it in hopeless...

    Thank you for always giving your encouragement.


  18. Brrrr! 44 degrees is really cold for us Californians but the tree is warm and bright. Thanks for sharing and bundle up!

  19. Oh, my goodness. I'm sitting here in the middle of a blizzard and the trees are covered in ice and no leaves and I see your amazing picture! Wow. I've forgotten how beautiful it is there. Thanks so much for brightening my day.

    I don't know what that beautiful yellow tree is - if I ever see someone outside, I'll ask.

    There are still trees with fall colors when I drive my son to the train in the mornings!

    I would like a litte bonsai of that tree. Once I had a Japanese maple bonsai and, in the fall, it was so beautiful with its red leaves.

    Kary, I still haven't gotten a place to stay. My other four colleagues are sharing a suite at the Cliffs and I sure can't afford that alone. I'm looking for something cheaper, maybe in Pismo. I'd love to eat at the Madonna know, I've never been inside there Are you free that Saturday for lunch? The 5th.

    Fall must seem an awfully long time ago with the weather you're having right now.

    Jingle -
    Isn't it the most beautiful tree? I wish it were mine!

    It is a great tree - I wonder if the squirrels are fond of it. I wonder how large it grows.

    The combination of the yellow-orange is really
    impressive on this tree.

    I agree with you, this tree is definitely pleasing to the eye.

    I have always loved bright colors, in my clothes, in flowers, in my surroundings. I also like black and white, though.

    These cold temperatures aren't much fun. I've been having to use a space heater at night!

    I can just imagine that you are having to snuggle with those turkeys to keep them warm.
