Hope everyone is having a Mellow Yellow Day! No bright yellow sunshine here today. It is raining again for the umpteenth time. Getting close to flood stage and we may have to build a yellow ark! There are some flash floods going on, but when the lake floods, we’ve got real problems!

Good thing is the rain will help the lovely flowers grow, and when they bloom, the butterflies will come; Yellow Butterflies!
