Green and yellow

Growing up, I remember hearing the saying "Green and yellow, catch a fellow". Not sure where it came from or why I remember it but it goes with my post today since it's about the yellow dandelions that were mowed down yesterday. Now my yard is more green than yellow.


Oh and in case anyone is wondering, the answer is no, I am not in search of a fellow.

  1. So sad for the loss of the pretty yellow. You know I had to look that rhyme up and it seems it has to do with the rules for wearing of color combinations - a variation is how to tell a poisonous coral snake from a non-poisonous one - the whole concept of "color" rhymes is quite fun. If you are idly twiddling around the interwebs, google "green and yellow, catch a fellow"...

    1. I googles it and I see it was actually red and yellow. I wonder if I remember it wrong or that's the way I really heard it.

  2. They are a pretty weed. Wait if you love them then they aren't a week.

    Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  3. my frist thought was the rhyme about the Coral Snake.
    Red touch black, safe for Jack. Red touches yellow, kills a fellow.

  4. I love the dandelions, and am always sad to see them go. They are so cheerful looking, and represent spring.

  5. I had never heard that rhyme before. I do love dandelions, and other yellow flowers. :)

  8. That's a great shot of the dandelion! It makes it look like a lovely flower yet we never want them in our lawn.
