Mellow yellow Monday: Cricket


Cricket is the second most popular sports in New Zealand, after rugby.

The kids start early, and here in Coyle's park, some kids were playing cricket.

Perfect for Mellow Yellow, Ann..... I've heard of Cricket and Rugby of course---but our popular sports here in the USA are football, baseball, basketball and soccer...

Have a great week.

This is a wonderful Mellow Yellow Monday post. As the weather improves I'm sure you'll have many more youngsters playing in the parks.

Gosh, I don't even know how to play it, but this is sure a really pretty set! I'd like to buy it and just set it out in the yard for looks! I bet it would attract happy children!

I follow many games, but never be a good player.

Yes, you can bring your students to my place for all the little little spirits around.

You may find another spider over here.

Okay, let me guess (because I really don't know anything about cricket) -- the first picture is the cricket bat and the second is the cricket wicket?
Am I right? Is there a prize for the first Canadian to figure it out? (Just kidding.)
Very very yellow, and you get to teach us something at the same time. Super.
