Don’t you love spring? The warmer weather, sunny skies, spring rain… promises of good things to come.
Spring makes me happy — I love to get outside and enjoy the sunshine (or the rain!) and revel in all the colours of this season. After a long, dreary winter, the vibrant shades appearing all around are a soothing balm to the soul.
My favourite spring palette include: the dreamy richness of luscious violet hues, the fresh emergent tints of vernal green, the sunshiny warmth of bright yellow tones, and the bold, sassy bloom of deep pink.
The purple tones of violet have me envisioning fields of lavender or a delicate crocus opening up in the morning sun. I think of early morning sunrises, painting the sky with glorious swathes of iridescent violet vistas.
Spring means new growth — tiny green buds unfurling on the trees, ready to burst forth in all their fresh, lively tones. Crisp, shiny blades of grass pushing upwards from the fertile ground. Green — ranging from verdant emerald tones of emerging foliage to the quiet hues of velvety moss-covered tree trunks.
Is there a cheerier proclamation of spring than a bed of lemony yellow daffodils nodding their heads in the sun? I love this time of rebirth heralded by scampering baby lambs and the soft pastel sweetness of a newly hatched ducklings and chicks. Yellow the colour of happiness!
One of my favourite colours is deep pink — vivid, whimsical and bold — like the striking blaze as a rhododendron opens its blooms. A pair of playful, vibrant pink rainboots adding a flare of pizzazz to grey, rainy April day.
These spring colours are a welcome sight as the world awakens from its winter slumber. I know that I feel joyful, happy, and carefree as all the beautiful shades of spring emerge to colour our world. What about you? What are your favourite spring colours?
