"There is no blue without yellow and orange." Insights & Controversy Regarding the Color Yellow PART TWO


And now . . . continued from 
Part One RE: 11:11 AM's  post:

Neither my Actinida kolomikta and Actimida or my Hakanechola Macra seemed to be this upset last year when this color change occurred and, therefore, their mood was a bit of a mystery to me. It was not until one of my still thriving yellow Tropaelum majus (seen below but nearly off camera to the left of its "family" in a group shot which was taken this past Thursday) and following  this are a few images of a lone Tropaelum majus flower.

According to my Tropaelum majus — who gets its "common" name, Nasturtium, from the references to "nose-twister" and "nose-tweaker" (hence no surprise that it's nosey) — it seems, that has it come to the attention of my Actinida kolomikta, Actimida and Hakanechola Macra that the painter Edgar Degas, once said, "What a horrible thing yellow is"!

My Tropaelum majus believes it was my Actinida kolomikta, Actimida and Hakanechola Macra's hearing Degas's opinons regarding the color yellow was devastating for them. I think highly of my Tropaelum majus, [as evidenced by the what I have posted about it on TLLG as well as nybg's (New York Botanical Garden) tumblr (which you may refer to by clicking here).

Evidently, not only did my Actinida kolomikta, Actimida and Hakanechola Macra concur on their admiration for Degas' paintings, but, they were in awe of his statue,  Little Dancer of Fourteen Years (Stay tuned for PART TWO AND THREE).
