How can you not feel happier when looking at a vase of cheerful daffodils?

And,according to theHuffington Post,there's real scientific research about how the color yellow can boost your mood: "Just like you thought,might be a a mood-lifter--who can't smile at a vase full of sunflowers?A 2007 experiment analyzed how people behaved at cocktail parties hosted in three different colored rooms (yellow,red and blue).The party-goers in the yellow room were more lively and talkative compared with those in the other colored rooms."

Makes sense!In my old house,I painted my kitchen yellow,and I have such fond memories of that little space.I also adore daffodils,and especially love going to see themherein full bloom each spring.
