Fleur jaune = yellow flower. I’m not sure what type of flower this is, possibly broom of some sort. If anyone knows, feel free to let me know. In the meantime, just enjoy the flower and your Friday.

When I was in college, I had a ’75 bright yellow Super Beetle I nicknamed Sundance. Armed with only an AM radio for entertainment and a sunroof for airconditioning, Sundance and I ventured all over the United States, even to places usually only accessed by vehicles with 4-wheel drive. I figured if I ever got stuck, I could find four strong men to pick him up and put him back on the road. Fortunately, it never came to that, but we had some adventures. The Super Beetle actually had dashboard and still had the engine in the back which gave great traction. You would have been amazed at how much I could pack into that front trunk and backseat. Sundance is long gone (couldn’t really get a child seat in the back seat of a 2-door car very well), but his spirit lives on in this little model.

For Christmas in 2019, I thought of making a Buche de Noel, a traditional French Christmas cake shaped and decorated like a log. However, Naperville boasts an French bakery by the name of A La Folie (“like crazy” as in “I love you like crazy) that happened to have an open house not long before Christmas. In addition to macarons and some chocolate confections, they were offering two types of Buche de Noels, a traditional chocolate although without the log appearance, and a non-traditional fruit flavor. I opted for the fruit and all of us agreed it was one of the best things we’d ever eaten. Even the decorations were edible. SO good and not overly sweet, but just enough.

Since we’re on personal…I had an excellent time in Flagstaff yesterday. Lisa and I met at Late for the Train Coffee shop, drinking inside obviously on a chilly winter day. After coffee, we ate Thai food, something I hadn’t had since we left Illinois. SO good. Downtown Flagstaff has lots of little shops, so we did a lot of browsing. I managed to get some door photos, too. Suddenly it was 3 pm, time to head back home. But there will be another time. Lisa, thanks for being a wonderful hostess and a kindred spirit. It was great to be in the mountains again and have some winter, complete with a bit of snow.

These two delicious yellow images are for Jude’s Life in Colour: yellow, her February challenge.

Just some of the interactive and dazzling fun at the WNDR Museum in Chicago. And of course for today it’s yellow. I’ll be out most of the day on an road trip, driving north to Flagstaff where I plan to meet a fellow blogger, Lisa at Micro of the Macro. In addition to meeting my first Arizona blogger in person, I’ll be getting to see snow, both of which have me excited. Will you find out more? Of course you will! But I won’t be around much today, so enjoy your day while I enjoy mine.

Another morning at the Preserve and today’s yellow.

I greatly miss the delicious variety of apples we were able to get in both Ohio and Illinois, but each place has its specialties. In Arizona, one of them is citrus (and we’re also eating soft, delicious dates from Yuma, Arizona.) Driving home a few days ago, I noticed a neighbor had a table on the sidewalk in front of their house filled with plastic grocery bags of something and big box as well. I made a swift U-turn and discovered the fruit was lemons, mostly enormous and all delicious-looking! I took a good bagful and when the next day arrived with bags still available, we took another one.

As the saying goes, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. So far I’ve made lemonade for my parents as well as for us and as the pitcher is waiting to be washed, another round is in the near future. I really think I should do something with the peels and I have to look up some other recipes soon to make the best use of them, the best use except for photos. 🙂 I also make a ginger-lemon drink that’s quite good warm or cold and of course very healthy as well.

But I have always thought that these tulips must have had names. They were red, and orange and red, and red and orange and yellow, like the ember in a nursery fire of a winter’s evening. I remember them.
