The colour yellow

Yellow is 'a colour capable of charming God'. Vincent van Gogh (from his letters to his brother Theo) and symbolised perhaps in his Sunflowers.

In our very cold summer I am delighted to see this yellow flower, with feeding bee, which at least reminds me of the sun!

'To the ancient Egyptians, the honeybee was the creature that transformed the warmth of the sun's rays into golden sweetness.' (Reflections on Archetypal Images, Taschen)
