Mellow Yellow Monday: Uglich, Russia

Yellow squashes hide under their leaves in a Russian vegetable garden.
Yellows of beautifully embroidered antique-style clothing, and a yellow plastic chair!

Above and below, yellow flowers in parks and public gardens,
some watered by hand with the help of pretty young volunteers.

Yellow is one of the most popular colors in Russian architecture, whether the building is large or small.

LOL, Kay, so you get those plastic chairs everywhere. I have four white ones on my veranda and everyone has them, even the local villagers use them but break them in a short time. I love that last colour of mustardy yellow. Hope you're having a WONDERFUL wee. Blessings and love Jo

Wow ! The beautifully embroidered antique-style clothing remind my mom the movie " pirate caribbean 3" the one Elizabeth Swann wear !

Kay, yellow is bright and you highlighted it very well. It is ok for flowers but surprisingly it is acceptable there for buildings (not too kind to the eyes if on buildings I thought)

Yep, I've got two of those plastic chairs on my allotment! Those costumes are absolutely wonderful, would love to try one on xxx

Emille said...

Lovely robes (that would be a temptation for me to buy them!). That sunny yellow on the walls makes the windows look very cheerful!

The dresses are so beautiful, too good to wear as Homedress as I do with my caftans from Morocco and Egypt. Usually I wear them until 10 am before I get dressed in "normal" clothes and then at 6 pm when I know I won't go out anymore. It's so comfortable !

Dianne said...

Beautiful richly embroidered dresses - so different to our western society but really quite exquisite!

I'm with Gattina, I like the way those traditional dresses are made.

Those antique style clothing is wonderful - was that available in a street market? It looks like it. This definitely is my very favorite photo.
