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


And now . . . continued from
 Part One and Part Two of 11-11-11 post:

Therefore, on the authority of my beloved Tropaelum majus, they were nearly inconsolable when they heard the yellow quote, and their sadness resulted in some of the yellow things which grow in my garden such as my Helichrysum bracteatum AKA Strawflowers and one of my Rose Shrubs, pictured below (respectively in images taken on this past Thursday morning just after all the "yellow-rhetoric" of the things which grow in my garden had occurred), to go on the Internet, searching for other artists who fully appreciated the color yellow, and that is when they found one of Vincent van Gogh's quotes about yellow, which is "How wonderful yellow is. It stands for the sun."

It is not surprising to me that my Helichrysum bracteatum or my yellow rose expressed their concern (by looking for a LIKE "yellow" quotation) over my Actinida kolomikta, Actimida and Hakanechola Macra feeling slighted over the quotation attributed to Degas regarding yellow, for they are not shy about standing up for themselves — or others — as evidenced in the blog posts that each of them have authored.

My yellow rose has been quite the little activist lately; remember how miffed she was at New York Botanical Gardens for their "eye-candy reference"? If you have not had a chance to "hear" her point of view on that, click here  to see the blog entry on TLLG where her "friend" the yellow Tropaelum majus has been included; and you may also, by clicking here, see what she posted on facebook about the New York Botanical Gardens still using "eye-candy" to describe flowers.

However, in spite of how well read the things which grow in my terrace garden are, they managed to miss another van Gogh quote regarding yellow, which is this, "There is no blue without yellow and orange". And for yours truly, dear reader, this particular quote says it all, because we cannot really have one thing without the other; and every one of us needs each other as well as having a distinct purpose, Having said this, I am a bit surprised that my Actinida kolomikta, Actimida and Hakanechola Macra were so disheartened over a Degas remark! For surely they must have some consolation in knowing that they ayr very much loved by me. If you have been following my blog then you probably recall that these "guys" have been an inspiration for some of my creative projects.

My Hakanechola Macra provided the inspiration for a Christmas card which I designed and was discussed on TLLG blog in a post you may refer to by clicking here. Other types of Christmas cards which I have designed are also garden themed. These selections are available for purchase and can be found in the Card Shoppe Pages of my web-site, Patricia Youngquist Photo-Art where they are available for purchase.

The Actinida kolomikta and Actimida has been featured in a number of my blog entries on TLLG including ones which you may refer to by clicking here as well as here and here.

Moreover, as you may recall, one of my Kiwi Vines had the role of the narrator in my first garden themed movie, a virtual story, called, "The Kiwi Speaks! Fifteen Minutes of Fame (almost) . . .".

The Kiwi Speaks! Fifteen Minutes of Fame (almost) is part of my Virtual Stories Vimeo Library, along with ones that I have produced for clients who want to promote their products (such as the painted cat rocks and bamboo journals at Gifts by Helen discussed in a number of LLG blog entries including ones that you may ref to by clicking here as well as here and here and here. Moreover, there others which you may find by going to the Labels Menu to the lefthand side of all blog entries and clicking on Painted Rocks or Gifts by Helen.

My Vimeo Library of virtual stories also contains a memorial piece as well as a wedding vow renewal called, The Miracle on 71st Street which was discussed in an LLG posting that may be referred to by clicking here.

I currently produce Virtual Stories for my clients, and details are available in my online brochure which you may view by clicking here; and you are also welcome to view any of my Virtual Stories via my Vimeo Channel by clicking here.

And with this —  before I conclude my three-parter, dear reader I thought I'd share with you that upon finishing this morning's  (Part One) blog entry, I noticed that my Actinida kolomikta and Actimida were smiling at last! This is evidenced in the image of it posted below, with its "leafy lips" baring its strong branches.

Moreover, my Hakanechola Macra seems a bit consoled too, of course, being next to Lavandula angustifolia AKA English Lavender which is where it is currently placed, as seen in the image (below) showing my Lavandula angustifolia's deep purple flowers.
