ABC Wednesday ‘Y’

This week’s ABC Wednesday Letter is ‘Y’


An old Yellow Yield sign found in the United States.

The current Yield sign used in the United States.

Yield sign used in most of Canada and Europe

Yield sign used in UK.

Yawn… Yield signs are kind of boring.



Yellow Butterfly (Swallowtail Butterfly) on Yellow wildflower.


A very familiar Logo.



  1. Very interesting series of y pictures and content. Love the yawning baby. I liked seeing all the different yield signs.

  2. Wow, haven't seen a yield sign like that since I was a kid...

  3. Really Yield signs aren't yellow anymore in the States? I learn so much from blogging!

  4. photowannabe:
    Glad you liked the y photos! Thanks so much for stopping by.

    Mr. Nighttime:
    Always good to hear from you! I can't remember the last time I saw one of those on the road. That photo was taken in Vermont. Thanks!

    Marie Reed:
    Yes, they just slowly dissappeared being replaced by the more 'international' red and white version. Thanks for visiting Marie!

  5. So creative....yield signs and yawns and the Giant Swallowtail (beautiful yellow!!!)

  6. Beautiful photos... I love yellow, it's so cheerful!

  7. Great 'Y's! A comparison of Yield signs - most original.

    I love how you sneaked a greyhound in there! And a youngster with a yellow toy! LOL!

  8. No one in the US knows whatb yield even means! Some ignore it, other come to a full stop.

  9. Hi Sherry,
    Thanks so much for visiting. I enjoy doing these as they keep the mind going.

    Hi Maureen,
    Thank you!

    Hi Jay,
    I missed Youngster with a Yellow toy! You are on top of it! I try to sneak in a hound in most of my posts, just for fun. Besides they never get tired of hearing compliments. I pass them all on to them. ;) Thanks Jay.

    Hi Roger,
    Thanks for visiting. I have to agree with you. I think a lot of people are confused about what exactly those Yield signs mean.
