Mellow Yellow Monday #1

My sister took this photo while in Florida last year. I love the colour (of course!) and thought it would be a great way to kick-off the new blog :)


Mister Linky is now closed for this post. We had 44 participants ... thanks for joining in the Mellow Yellow Fun!

COOL!

Mister linky is nice, but NOT followed by bots.
I will suggest people copy and paste the final "list" to their posts. That way, all participants will be linked.

Cool looking template Drowsey. I like it here :-)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

While blogger hosted images work "most" of the time, you may want to consider using a different source like photobucket for badges.

HUG HUG :-)

Tarolino said...

Really nice template this. I'm already thinking of my collection of autumn tree photos for next Monday :)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

DONE!!!!

Drowsey Monkey said...

Thanks speedy! Was the badge not working for you? Maybe I'll upload a photobucket one. Thanks for the tip ;)

Tarolino - very cool! Yes, I think I have to dig into some old photos to find yellow ... everything is very white & grey here in Canada right now! lol

Jaffer said...

I'll be glad to participate and support your meme !

It'll get me to start snapping pictures again ! :)

Nurse Amanda Hugankiss said...

Next week I'll post a yeller picture! :)

Busy Bear said...

COOL BLOG! Really sunny in here! :)

Brownie said...

Hello! I have a blog in spanish but I want to join, I think there's no problem, rigth? :)
About the code, don't use Blogger hosted images because it makes you use bandwidth and when it's full you can't upload more photos and you have to pay, so use photobucket or other service :)

Drowsey Monkey said...

Very cool Jaffer! Looking forward to seeing the photos.

Hey Nurse & Bear ... so glad you "2" will be joining in! Bring your sunglasses ;)

Thanks Brownie - of course you can join! I visit lots of blogs in many different languages. Thanks for the tip about blogger images. :)

Speedcat Hollydale said...

Jaffer is not on Mr Linkie ???

Did he post already??


Hi Drowsey!!!!! Thanks for coming to my wormhole

Speedcat Hollydale said...

I can hardly wait to see the Nurses Yella Picha

VioletSky said...

I'm all signed up, still working out the linky thing. I did a test, and am missing something. But Monday is set to go, and I'll have it figured out by then.

I've already posted lots of yellow photos on my photoblog, but I have many more, I'm sure.

Drowsey Monkey said...

Cool! You don't have to put Mister Linky on your blog unless you want to - I never do with the other photo memes I participate in. To be honest I don't know how to! LOL

As long as you put your link to your post on this one everyone will find you. Thanks!

Tina said...

Drowsey Monkey said...

Great start Drowsey ... I am going to add the new links to my post.

Hi Drowsey Monkey!!

Thanks for dropping by the GritFX blog and for your comment on "Hello Neighbour" - the dog kind of neighbour is welcome any day;)

I'm new to the idea of participating in other blogs - and it's turning out to be loads of fun.

I'll have to see what I have with yellow in it, and then I'll check back in if I have something to share.

Have fun with the new blog.

Joy said...

Hi,,, I already posted my yellow Pics.... More power to your meme..... Now I have to be on the look out for yellow stuff....

I like that Hibiscus...

Drowsey Monkey said...

Thank Manz - I enjoy these memes as well altho my sister does all the photo taking ... so I have the easy part!

bobbie said...

A lovely photo for your first post.

the badge didn't work for me either. Neither did your email. I just added a link to my post and to the picture in the sidebar.

Kathy said...

I got mine posted on my site. This was a neat ideal. Enjoyed trying to find a yellow pic this week. Off to check out everyone elses.

Drowsey Monkey said...

Thanks everyone! I'm looking forward to visiting everyone's blogs.

Thanks for the info about the badge & email - I'll look into that :)

Posted an original on my main blog.
Hope you will like it :-)

Hi Drowsey! I'm joining in! Fun idea and love the sunny blog. Yellow is my favorite color too! :D

happily retired gal said...

Your yellow blossom is a BEAUTIFUL start! Is it hybiscus? I've posted my first Mellow Yellow Monday post at Happily Retired Gal this morning. I look forward to visiting others and to watching for more 'yellow' things to share in weeks and months to come ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Tarolino said...

I have managed to dig up some yellow things without having to resort to last years pics. Great! I probably will have to though next week :).
And now to some exploring around the MYM world...
It's started really well.

Digital Polaroids said...

Excellent idea! Hope to participate next week!

Beautiful Hibiscus, the color is intense. Look forward to being a part of your new meme!

I love this meme! so bright and cheery! I think you have a hit Drowsey monkey!

Drowsey Monkey said...

thanks survivor! We need to brighten things up - especially this time of year :)

Jessica said...

I posted my Yellow Mellow Monday photo. I think its quite yellow-y! This photo meme will be awesome this spring and summer...its kinda hard to find yellow in the winter!

Drowsey Monkey said...

jessica - true ... but you may have something indoors that's yellow. It's everywhere! lol

pehpot said...

Cool color selection! I love yellow so much.

Here, we have Ronald all over, even two on the store I took the photo. LOL

Drowsey Monkey said...

pehppot - yes, yellow is so uplifting :) Wow - 2 ronalds in one store! We usually only get 1 ... lol.
