50 Shades of Hay (Yellows)

I’ve done a list of shades of gray, but how about some shades of hay?  I had so much fun compiling the names of fifty different grays that I decided to repeat myself, this time with yellows.  Not only is yellow usually a happier color, but “50 Shades of Hay” is a common name for satire of E.L. James’s bestseller Fifty Shades of GreyThere is even a twitter account dedicated solely to showcasing pictures of hay.  If they can do hay, I can deliver some mellow yellows for you.
