Yellow & White...


~Yellow water Iris
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The color yellow shines with optimisim,
enlightenment, and happiness.




~"The splendor of the Rose and the
whitness of the lily
do not rob the little violet of it's scent
nor the
"daisy" of it's simple charm!
If every tiny flower wanted to be a rose,
Spring would loose it's lovliness."


~Water Iris begin to bloom in the pond...
~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~

How the color Yellow affects us:
Stimulates mental processes
Stimulates the nervous system
Activates memory
Encourages communication



The color WHITE enables fresh beginnings
aides in mental clarity
evokes purification of thoughts and actions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
White projects purity, cleanliness,& neutrality.
Wishing everyone a Beautiful weekend! :)

Cat, I love these macro flower images. All your bright flowers glow against the black background, and the scrapbook compositions are very original. I'm going to enjoy seeing more. What a visually stunning blog!
