It was the Spring of 2013 that we went to see the rapeseed flowers of Luoping in China. We were blessed to be there at the right time. There were just endless fields of yellow flowers. Without a doubt, the sight of these yellow flowers were just uplifting . . . . we were full of joy! PS For those who are interested, please visit my previous posts on the subject.
Have been raining for more than two weeks now. Need some sunny photos to cheer up.
The humid and unsettled Spring weather here remind us so much of the good weather we had earlier last month up in Luoping, Yunnan with the rapeseed flowers in full bloom.
Can we have some sunshine this week???
While Christmas is usually associated with the red color, some people believe Easter is related to the yellow color: the feathers, the daffodils and the chickens on the Easter cards.
In any case, yellow is usually related to the brightness of the sun; our joy and happiness.
For this week, the yellow rapeseed flowers at Luoping, Yunnan are still my favorite. What a joy it was to walk among the yellow fields!
While many tourists just walked along the main paths, some have actually ventured into the fields. It was a bliss to be in close contact with nature !
This is Yellow Monday again; but I can assure you that it will not be another week of all Thai colors.
After posting every day last week ( continuous eight posts including this one), I am sort of exhausted.
When I first blogged, out of naivety, I called this blog – RetireeDiary, thinking I was going to write something everyday in a second language. Last week has taught me the lesson that doing so will be more like work ( and not retirement)!
I love the yellow fields of canola / rapeseed flowers in Luoping, Yunnan; so I am posting another picture of it to uplift my spirit and wishing you all a good start of a new week leading almost into Easter!
In Thailand, there is a color associated with each day of the week:
Monday = Yellow
Tuesday = Pink
Wednesday = Green
Thursday = Orange
Friday = Blue
Saturday = Purple
Sunday = Red
On Monday, many of the Thais dress in yellow, the day of the week on which their king was born, to show respect for him.
After the recent trip to Luoping, Yunnan in China, I am overwhelmed with yellow . . . . I have so many photos showing the yellow canola or rapeseed flowers all over the place. Should I showcase them . . . . . . . . on each Monday??
