Golden Yellow: a happy colour for spring or anytime!

Today is the first day of Spring in the Southern Hemisphere.
Which means it is also Wattle Day in Australia.
After such a wet winter, Melbourne has erupted 
in a sea of golden yellow over the last month, 
with each wattle plant trying to outdo its rivals 
in a bid for glorious colour across the city.
This little wattle tree is in my front garden.
Yellow is such a happy colour  - and one for all seasons,
not just spring. 
For summery dresses...
Or cosy winter sitting rooms.
For glamourous dinner party settings...
Or wedding ruffles.
Yellow is one of my all-time favourite colours. 
It brings that happy burst of sunshine with it,
and never fails to lift a mood.
