LiveStrong My Friends!

Yesterday, I bought these beautiful flowers. For some reason I felt a tug towards yellow. There were many colors to choose from - pink, red, orange. But I had a taste for yellow. When I woke up this morning, the sun was shining so brightly and the first thing I saw after the sun was my beautiful yellow flowers by my bedside.

Then I remembered, that it's LiveStrong Day! Now I understand my taste for yellow. Please look here to check out the roundup of recipes that Barbara put together for A Taste Of Yellow. She received 143* recipes! Wouldn't this make an amazing book? I would buy it in a heartbeat.

Those of you who are fighting cancer or have friends and loved ones who are, please stay strong and let's fight the good fight!

*Updated 5/17/07* Barbara has received 148 entries!

asha - I loved your pudding recipe too! It's pretty incredible to be part of something like this. I feel like it was a worldwide movement towards hope.

tera - Thank you! I guess you should eat first before you visit! Sort of like how you're supposed to eat before you shop or else you'll buy too much! ; )

nina - It really was!

lotus reads - The recipes are truly amazing! And hopefully I'll have several more days to enjoy the flowers!

susan - You're welcome! And I loved your mango salsa recipe!

ari - This was really a remarkable experience. And your fritatta recipe was wonderful! I haven't gotten to read your new post all the way through yet, but congratulations on the new job!

anali my cousin, it is the colour of the sun, the lovely meerigold flower and the flame... so it is also called flame yellow.

It is also the colour of the strength.

Missed you and I am delighted to be back here reading you.

amisha said…
yellow is such a great color... color of life and strength! for the last few weeks we have been getting sunflowers from the farmer's market and they make me so happy. love seeing that burst of delicious yellow every day.

I've always liked yellow roses more than the red. Also, I love (I may have the spelling wrong) forsythia bushes, bright yellow flowers that smell so lovely.

I am facinated by your taste in bed linen.

How exciting for're right yellow is the ultimate colour warm, friendly, so cheerful, you can see why the daffodil has been chosen as a Cancer flower. Yellow. (and spring... new beginnings)
Enjoy your flowers Anali

jac - Glad to see you back cuz! That was like a poem about yellow! Thank you!

mizrepresent - You're welcome!

amisha - I love sunflowers! I haven't seen any around yet. I'm looking forward to getting some!

suldog - You are so right about the forsythia bushes! I have no idea about the spelling either, but for me they are the first solid sign of spring. They are wonderful.

something from me - I knew someone would comment!

so simple - I forgot about daffodils. They are beautiful too. And my flowers are still going strong!
