Mellow Yellow

While yellow is a color I seldom wear or use in my work and while most of my garden is in pinks and blues and purples, a bit of yellow sneaks in to give its cheery spark.

The bare beginnings of my next Skinny Wiggly quilt

Lest you think I have a huge garden, I do not. I have several containers on my small front porch and on my big back deck, then some things in beds around the house.  It's enough to give me a lot of color and even some flowers for picking.  I also grow several herbs in containers and cherry tomatoes in big pots on my back deck. I love being able to go out and pick some flavoring for my cooking.
