Yellow is probably the most maligned color in the garden. I would go so far as to say, that if you were to take a poll, it would probably be elected "Least Favorite Garden Color" by a landslide.
Poor, unloved yellow!
Heck, if it were a person, it would need therapy just to cope with all the rejection.
Now personally, I don't mind yellow. ( I know I am swimming against a strong current here. What can I say? I'm always seem foolhardy enough to climb out on a limb to champion a worthy underdog!)
I'll grant you that yellow does have a grit your teeth edge to it in its brightest forms, yet it is cheerful and lively too.
Just look at these sunflowers! They are so darn happy looking, they might as well be smiling.
I think of children, when I think of yellow sunflowers. They have a simple, overall shape that a child can easily capture with a box of crayons.
Bees love them.
And miraculously, they turn their faces to the sun.
Certainly, no flower advocates yellow with a bigger voice!
But, if you do not like yellow, I concede that you may never like yellow. Nothing I or anyone else could say can change that.
It is just one of those inexplicable personal preference that defies analysis.
Yet, no matter what we may think of it, yellow isn't going anywhere. Color in nature exists apart from fashion and personal preference.
Yellow is always here and there, shining brightly sometimes and glowing softly other times. It awaits your notice and appreciation with persistence, on the off-chance that you change your mind.
