Mellow Yellow Monday N:o 6

Here is the second edition of the yellow sign, car, indoors, house series for MYM

Photobucket
This is not a sign directing people to a royal gala. The only 'royalty' we have in Finland are the yearly chosen Tango King and Queen in the small town of Seinäjoki.
This sign indicates that the following stretch of road is part of the king's road, an ancient road that stretched from the west coast town and original capital of Finland called Turku to the commercial center of Vyborg in the east (now belonging to Russia since the peace negotiations after the second world war). The original road was built on order from the Swedish king during the time that Finland was a part of Sweden in the middle ages. Hence the name 'king's road'.

Just another little yellow car. Not quite so bright as the one in last week's post.

Photobucket
Photographs of frosted flowers on a yellow wall. Mum's kitchen again. The pictures were taken by dad (R.I.P.) during a rare cold spell in the middle of summer many years ago resulting in a frost rim around the flower petals and leaves in the early morning. Also the flower in the middle picture is yellow.

Photobucket
Just one of the many yellow houses that can be found around these parts. These days yellow is a favoured colour for painting houses with allthough traditionally houses used to be an earthy red colour with white corners like the buildings in the background.

I think you've covered all the spectrums of yellow here!

Oh, and the background of my picture is actually a white blind, I'm not sure why it ended up blue like that.

The sign for King's Road is very interesting. I love all of you photos, but that house is just superb.

Beautiful pictures! I'd like to live in a yellow house - this one nestled in the trees looks very nice.

You really did quite a series of yellow. The house is really charming in yellow. My former neighbor had her house all done in yellow and in the long cold winters, it was nice to look at...

a lot of yellow among the snow there :) It's very interesting, since It's very rare for me to see this scenery, thanks for sharing!

I'm always impressed by how much yellow you find each week!

I like the yellow houses - most are boring brick around here ... with white trim. lol...pretty dull!
