Six word Saturday

6ws-participating-in-bannerUplifting YELLOW – the colour of sunshine.

The Autumn colour in Richmond

Autumn colour in Richmond, North Yorkshire

Even a sunshine bird like me can’t help but thrill to the colours of Autumn.   Crispy days, with the water running dark and the sun shining bright…

And glints through the leaves in Autumn

And glinting through the leaves.

Here is my gallery of yellow for this week.  Click on a photo to roll with me.

My kaleidoscopes of colour have brightened my Saturdays over the last few weeks.  I can’t resist the opportunity to add this one to the Weekly Photo Challenge, the hue of you.

Join Cheri’s challenge, or simply stay here, nice and comfy with Cate at Show My Face.  The world’s your oyster!



  1. I love yellow too, and orange. So your cheerful gallery is particularly appealing. They are all gorgeous Jo, the autumn trees and the vibrant door especially.

    1. I was disappointed in our Autumn colour this year, and those are last year’s trees. Then suddenly there’s a riot of colour this week! Some of it might get into my red post this Saturday, but that’d be telling. 🙂

  2. These yellow colours are uplifting for sure Jo and truly brightened up my day. Stunning shots and share hon. 😀 *big hugs*

  3. Yellow is the happiest color there is. Thanks for sharing.:) We are on a road trip to Memphis, Tenn to see daughter and then onto Arkansas,Miss and ,Louisiana. Was hoping for some fall colors but not cold enough and too far south.

    1. Wish I could be a passenger 🙂 (just for a little while- I’d make the tea and wash the car, make myself useful…)
      Have a wonderful time. You won’t need the colours while you have the warmth of family.

  4. This lovely yellow brighten up my grey morning in Cambridge, dear Jo! And it seems to works wonders as well, there’s a crack up there now, letting some sunshine out.
    Have a lovely day!
    Big hug

    1. I think most of Britain must be grey, Dina. I just came back from walking and it was dismal. I’m blaming my Polish cousin, Wojtek. He came to stay with his sister in Norfolk for a week’s pike fishing and I ‘ve hardly seen the sun since. 🙂

  5. That is a yellow door! Our leaves here aren’t turning pretty colors like yours. They are changing but they are so muted that it doesn’t have the same wow factor.

  6. Had I entered The Hue of You, like you I would have chosen yellow too.
    Warm and hot without the danger of red. Blue would have won easily had it been plural and associated with music. Green is of course the in colour these days of climate change.
    You post had every thing for a yellow yokel like me, except the yellow submarine.

    Pauline and I often visit places for the Autumn leaves and I have a photo of Pauline in Matilda, our van, I pasted in the middle of acres of Sun-flowers using Photoshop trickery..
    Nice Post Thanks for representing yellow.

  7. Lovely photos – each and every one of them. As a summer lover too, I do also love the colours of autumn. I’m going to wait a couple of weeks I think, and then drive through a local forest to admire the changing trees. I try to do it every year – even used to take my daughter from when she was very little to look at the beautiful autumn tints. 🙂

    1. Thanks for finding me, Tonya. 6WS was a little strange this week. Poor Cate!
      Yesterday was full of drizzle and grey skies but the sunrise right now is very pretty. Have a lovely day 🙂

    1. A little mist shrouding the trees in mystery, I don’t mind, Seonaid. Drizzle’s a bit less inspiring 🙂 Beautiful sunrise here this morning, but Sunday is my chores day and Dad comes to lunch so it will be wasted. 🙂

    1. Hi Jim! Had a good day? I just had my evening fix of Strictly Come Dancing and am settled down to the blog. I love for it to be sunny enough for me to wear sun glasses. No chance here for a while 😦

      1. Mrs. Jim and I just came back from a 45 minute walk in the neighborhood. Met some new neighbors, our friends had moved to Rhode Island just this Thursday.

        It is shorts and golf shirt weather here today. Beats the snow of further north for being outside.

      1. I DO love England! I visit as much as possible despite the weather… I have “fond” childhood memories of walking to school in the rain and snow… my Dad was from Yorkshire but we lived on the south coast.

      2. Seems like WP limits the number of replies to any one comment…. or maybe it’s just me! Anyway, hope this ends up in the right place! There WAS a man involved… my father! I was only 12 the first time we came and 15 or 16 when we settled permanently. I often wonder what my life would have been like if my parents had stayed in England…. it would be interesting, although not necessarily a good thing, if we could see where each fork in the road would have taken us…

      3. I suspected it might be your Dad 🙂 Yes, I think WP does as it’s always hit and miss with comments. Nice to catch up with you anyway 🙂
        How different would my life have been if Dad hadn’t lost the Polish connection!

      1. It is but fleeting sun. September and October are normally gorgeous and it was VERY summer like. Now it is cooling off and November is our one gray month which I hate. I’d rather have it ice cold and sunshine brightening my day! 🙂

  8. I do look forward to your colorful Saturday postings! This week my favorite is the beautifully bright yellow doorway. I love yellow but can’t wear it often due to my coloring. Enjoy your weekend!

    1. I don’t really wear it either but it makes a lovely highlight around the home (our Algarve house is all blue and yellow against the white walls) 🙂
      Glad to be of service.

  9. I *love* your autumnish yellow photos! Such beautiful colouring in the trees! And your gallery of yellow cheered up this grey day. I love how you made the text pop up in your gallery of photos. Would you tell me your secret how you did that?
    I like that yellow door to a house… I wonder whether it gives a happy feeling every time you enter it? 😉

    1. Hi Cessie! Not me being clever at all- the WordPress galleries allow you to write captions in. It’s one of the features that I really love. You use Blogspot, don’t you? I don’t know if that works the same. 🙂
      That yellow door was just painted in the last couple of weeks- cheering itself up for the Winter! Pretty grey and damp here too.
      Did you manage to link to Six word Saturday this week? I tried twice and there wasn’t a new post up. I’ll go back now and have another go. Maybe Cate was having a lie-in 🙂

      1. Aha… WordPress. Yeah I often wonder whether I would change to WordPress as well. No time to do that at the moment though. Maybe next year.
        No Six Word at Cate’s blog this Saturday, no. I decided to do my own blog hopping around the usual 6WS blogs: I found quite many people participating without participating 😉

      1. Yes, it is! My entries aren’t exactly typical, and this week is complicated by the Weekly Photo Challenge but if you click on the pink header it takes you to Cate’s page, and all will be explained. She actually forgot to post herself this week as she was ill, poor soul, but you’ll get the general idea. 🙂
        2 blogs! I couldn’t cope 🙂

    1. “Hue is you” played right into my hands this week, Amy! Yellow isn’t really my favourite colour but it definitely is the colour of sunshine, and you know how I feel about that 🙂 Thanks a lot!

  10. I think I even spot the Bamberg Rathaus in there Jo! Have you been there too? Perhaps it’s just another building painted in a similar way. It looks familiar though.

    1. The old gold shot is in the Market Square in Wroclaw in Poland. The one next to it, with stained glass windows is the Rathaus in Krakow. I’ve only been to Germany once and that was just a day visit, over the border from Zgorzelec in Poland. The architecture was beautiful. 🙂

  11. I just love everything yellow … except in my clothing … stunning photos again, I love your color mission. The second photo from the top is my favorite … the autumn colors and that cold blue river.

      1. The Swedish colors … the yellow cross (sun beams) and the blue sky.
        Truly beautiful color combination. Yellow goes with green, grey and white. A very versatile color, but in cloths it make me look so pale, even in the summer. Lovely shots, Jo!

      2. Thanks, hon. 🙂 Catch up time on the blogs this afternoon. It was wet! wet! wet! first thing but now that I’ve encouraged it, the sun is trying to struggle out 🙂 Big hug!

      1. It must be tiresome, doing it every week. I’ll probably go looking for Ron and Jim a bit later, if I have time. Thoroughly miserable here, but I’m still smiling. Have a good weekend, Viv 🙂
