Y is for Yoo-Hoo, Yellow Hibiscus and Yellow M&M

- After all these years, finally trying the chocolaty drink Yoo-hoo - a co-worker brought them in as a leftover treat from a party at her house. Too many calories, but so good. 

- At the plant center at Ace Hardware, this beautiful yellow hibiscus.  I couldn't decide which photograph I liked best, so here's another.

- And now they've thought of everything - scented M&Ms candles.  The yellow M&M looks a tad dismayed - maybe because he's atop a candle.

Day 25 of the Blogging from A to Z Challenge featuring the letter "Y".  We take Sundays off during the challenge, so I'll see you all on Monday, where we will wind this thing up!

You're almost there! I am so impressed. Love the hibiscus pics...I did not know there was yellow.

Dawn Malone said...

*Love flower photos and yours are especially gorgeous! Great 'Y' posts

LL Cool Joe said...

I've never heard of Yoo-Hoo.

The candles crack me up. Have a lovely weekend Lynn!

I use t buy a friend's family Yoo-Hoos every year for Xmas- miss those folks now Living in New Hampshire- Tasty but full of High Fructose Corn Syrup which I try to not eat anymore. Not as much fat as a milkdshake tho!

What a cool flower- n I think you need both pics to show the shape-

M&Ms melt in your mouth n over the candle too! Candles- what a silly idea!

Granny Annie said...

I love Yoo-hoo! I used to love Chocolate Soldier too but you can't find that anymore.

Did you take home a Yellow Hibiscus plant or just photograph it?

I am more dismayed than the yellow M&M. It amazes me how many products we buy that are simply advertising for some company. How did they get us to start paying to advertise for them? Smart folks I guess.

Riot Kitty -

Thank you. I have today and Sunday to think of Z things. :)

Yes - I thought that yellow Hibiscus was gorgeous.

Dawn -

Thank you - I like to use that macro setting on my camera for that.

Joe -

That might be a southern thing, I don't know.

You have a great weekend, too!

Snaggle -

True - not as much fat as a milkshake.

I know - the candles were necessarily a good thing - just a silly thing. :)

Granny Annie -

I had forgotten about Chocolate Soldiers! We used to get them at church camp.

I was feeling a bit desperate for Y things and was delighted to find that Yellow flower. The visit to the plant nursery was to buy a few geraniums.

That's kind of what I meant by "now they've thought of everything." I mean - I can see products like M&M dispensers, that kind of thing, but that was a stretch, putting one on top of a lemon scented candle. But I needed a third Y thing and that just had to be it. :)

Betty Manousos said...

oops! sorry...i mean, the comment about the hibiscus flower should be written here.

i've never heard of yoo-hoo either.

big hugs!

Dana said...

I've heard of Yoo-hoo but have never tried it.

Love the yellow M&M. I have a friend who collects them. He would love that candle!

Have a nice weekend!

Karen Walker said...

Wow,I'd completely forgotten about Yoo-Hoo's. Used to drink them all the time as a child. No wonder I had a weight problem later on.

Elephant's Child said...

Love that hibiscua. Yellow is such a wonderful colour in flowers. Thanks.

Jannie Funster said...

M & M's take over the world. :)

hibiscus are so lovely. Actually Blue Bunny's favorite flower.He's out at the hardward now, actually. getting a fitting for the outdoor faucet.

Not sure if I've ever had a YooHoo tho seen them around for years. I remember Bette Middler served them to her interviewing guest in some movie or another. "Down & Out In Beverly Hills" maybe, but don't quote me on that.


Jannie Funster said...

hardware, not hardward.

And I should add Better Middler's character in the movie.


Farida said...

How creative of you to think of things associated with "Y." The hibiscus are pretty and yellow is my favorite color :)

I would love to come back to your site and read new entries in your lovely blog. Would you care to link exchange? Take care, Farida :)

Lynn said...

Betty -

I suspect Yoo-Hoo is a southern thing. :)

Hugs to you!

Dana -

I included those candles because they made me laugh because of their silliness. :) And also because one of them would be a good Y thing.

Karen -

We all did things like that earlier in life, I think.

The Elephant's Child -

Thank you - I liked them, too.

Jannie -

No need to correct - I knew what you meant. :) And I like the idea of Blue Bunny at the hardware.


Farida -

I love sunflowers, too. Thanks for stopping by!

Maude Lynn said...

Louvregirl said...

Nice shot of the flowers, Lynn! I have a yellow yo-yo; Yo??! Ya want to yo-yo over yonder?

Unknown said...

I love all your Y's. especially the yooho. I haven't had that in years.

Lynn said...

Mama Zen -

Aren't they? I wish I had room to plant something like that.

lg -

Yes and yo! :)

Melanie -

Pretty full of calories, but so good.

Chatty Crone said...
