Mellow

Something which is mellow is soft, rich and free from harshness, particularly where our senses are involved. If we're mellow, we're either softened by age and experience - or by alcohol! (A nice mellow shiraz, perhaps?)

When describing fruit it meand soft, sweet and juicy. Mellow soil is rich and loamy.

I took this picture of my and Gary's shadows in the mellow evening light. (That's not snow but chalk - the light breeze was mellow too.) I *may* have drunk some wine when we returned to the van after our walk.

Fun shot.
So, you mellowed even further after that?

Great pic, Patsy. I'm still waiting for the mellow period of life to come along :)

I think I'm mellowed out from the photos. Those two shadows could be from outer space.

Mellow - a very suitable word for the first day of autumn tomorrow - season of mists and mellow fruitfulness. Great photo.

Hey Patsy,

I love the shadowy photo. With that, it's time for me to go mellow out....

Gary :)

Mellow is a lovely word, and I'm sure the time of day- and the wine- helped. :)
