a mellow yellow house

I've always liked this yellow house. unfortunately the long island railroad runs right next to the black fence you see pictured here. I wonder if the house shakes whenever the train passes.
today is also mellow yellow monday. if you feel so inclined, please visit drowsey monkey's mellow yellow monday meme to check out all things yellow. & don't forget to add your own bit of yellowness too.

A beautiful little house. I am afraid the railway traffic might make it inhabitable.
Have a great week Lily.

it's a lovely house but with the trains passing by, i don't think the people who live here can find some peace and quiet.

We don't see too many houses like this out here in the suburbs of Southern California.


Some yellow is just the right thing
To make a sad heart start to sing;
It fills you with cheer—
Now isn’t that clear?
It’s better than any old bling!

I can imagine the noise and vibration when a train line passes through! Do you think one ever gets used to that? The house looks well maintained, so maybe so.:)

I bet the occupants no longer hear it .. when I was little my grandparents lived on the hill above the elevated subway in the Bronx .. when I would sleep overnight at their apartment I couldnt fall asleep because I could hear the trains go by .. my grandparents didnt even notice .. and they both had excellent hearing .. you just get used to sounds like that ..

Same here I like it too. But it's too close to the railroad, but there is always a way to block the train coming by, plant a lot of evergreens, but the sound nobody could block it hehe.

You are so good to find something yellow every week, Lily. I would never be able to do this.

Hope you're having a good week!
