In the garden, Autumn is, indeed the crowning glory of the year, bringing us the fruition of months of thought and care and toil. And at no season, safe perhaps in Daffodil time, do we get such superb colour effects as from August to November.

The best part about this time of year is the display of color! These are my favorite colors…deep saturated hues of yellow, orange, green, and red. I have discovered that as I have moved on in years, the vibrant, saturated colors are my best friends. Because of this, I tend to avoid the pastels.

So, in honor of the visibility of autumn, I will kick off a series theme about this season’s colors on VISIBLE MONDAY. Today’s color focus is yellow….or saffron, or gold, or whatever name you would like to give it. At this time of year in South Texas, we enjoy to bright yellow lantana, Carolina jasmine, golden squash; as well as, the incredible leaves which fall from only a few trees. They are fabulous and so inspiring.

I have been attempting to break from my comfort zone a little at a time and enjoy some fun prints. This desire led to today’s blouse from Stein Mart. I was really drawn to this print and the pop of yellow made it something I did not currently own.

Tomorrow, we will celebrate another autumn color; but until then, please go over to NOT DEAD YET STYLE and enjoy the talented ladies who participate in VISIBLE MONDAY
