One Word Sunday Challenge:…Yellow










As with many places we visited during our European holiday,

we stopped briefly in Monaco to peep into

Saint Nicholas’ Cathedral where Princess Grace is buried.


One Word Sunday Challenge:...Peep










an underground room or vault beneath a church,
used as a chapel or burial place

Princess Grace of Monaco is buried in

the Royal Crypt behind the altar

according to Google.

However this is the grave pointed out

to tourists who know no better.






As one who can remember the early seventies.

I do remember a Melbourne Department Store logo

telling us in no uncertain manner that everything

was ‘Yelping Yellow‘ this year.

And that was the only time I saw

any quantity of yellow that year.

However Monaco’s Street Art

had me singing again.

MGW tells me these yellow doors are part of

Alice in Wonderland‘ or ‘Narnia’. 

I shall take her word for it.


Yellow from the garden.

Some early signs of spring are the

winter blooming acacia trees, and…

…the daffodils which bloom in August.




Spring is definitely here when the paddocks

turn yellow with canola blooms.

A 2019 sight that is a long way off.

Yellow is a nice bright, happy colour

to have around as we head into the depths of winter.

I  should have written a long wet winter.

The days may be cooler, however we have only measured

two and a half inches up until April 30 this year.

Should be closer to 6 inches.

Luckily we had a little over an inch on May 2 and 3.

Blues and yellows from all over.

This was new to me.

I was unaware we had coast guard boats, as such,

let alone yellow ones.


Air Arctic at Coldfoot airport.

A local tourist train.

Fairbanks airport I think.

My favourite form this set.

Loved the song or The Beatles.

Not so  sure now though.







Decided to stick to Church windows

this week.

Saint Matthew’s Church,

Manly, Sydney.

Saint John the Baptist Church,

Arras, France.

Wesley Church in Fremantle…

Western Australia.

Finally, it maybe a stretch to call this a windows, 

however, it can be found in

Cathédrale Notre-Dame-Immaculée

(Cathedral of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception),

also known as Saint Nicholas Cathedral and also

contains the tombs of

Princess Grace and Prince Rainier

of Monaco.

Most buildings in Amsterdam are Vertical, however,

some do lean like the Tower of Pisa.


Even from an altitude of 40,000 feet it is difficult

to appreciate the Vastness of the Antarctic ice pack.

I always The Creation of Adam would dominate

the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel in the Vatican City.

  However it was swallowed up by surrounding panels.

According to Wikipedia it is substantial

9 ft 2 in × 18 ft 8 inches, it is so far above

one’s head it seems you could

hold it in your hands.
