The color of spring

Can anybody tell me where has spring gone to this year? Have you seen it over there in your part of the world maybe? She is certainly nowhere to be seen here! In fact, I think I might have to get my winter boots out again... it's been so very windy and still cold around here, yuck!
What colors do you associate with Spring? Is it the pastel of Easter colors, or the golden yellow of Forsythia and Daffodils? Or, do you think of fragrant Lilac? Or maybe the sunny yellow punch of lemons?
Green... green for me! Green is so appealing, and is sure to brighten up any corner of my home!
Spring is green, right? And, the perfect companion for green is... you guessed it, roses! Either fresh or fake, encourage yourself that Spring will come by using fruits and flowers in your home...
Just let Spring come early to your home with whatever colors brighten YOUR mood!

  8. I like green too. My walls are painted green - kitchen, T.V room, one bathroom.
    But yellow is spring for me. I am thinking of daffodils!

  22. And Spring arose on the garden fair,
    Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
    And each flower and herb on Earth's dark breast
    rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
    ~Percy Bysshe Shelley, "The Sensitive Plant"

    I love your beautiful photos!
    Hugs and Blessings,
    Virginia :)

  23. For me the colors of spring are those of my Japanese sherry tree : sweet pale pink. Each year I wait for its flowering to paint its sweet pink flowers, it's almost a ritual for me.

  24. Oh yes, Cielo, the first greens of Spring are so wonderful and fresh. I love it so. Come Spring, Come!

  25. I love the violet of Violets and Lilacs, especially. Since we're now getting snow again, they seem so far off. -sigh-

    Before the snow began again, I discovered something on my patio, and took photos. Because it made me think of you. And I say this, in my my Wed. entry. I hope you'll come take a peek at them, when you can. They did make me think, of you!

  30. I have such a hard time with choosing a favorite color for anything because I love all colors. Yet, the soothing white just calms. I love green & think of it for spring because of the fresh green grass. Pink for the blooms of so many blossoms. Blue for the beautiful sky. Choices! I am just so thankful that there are so many colors (& shades of each color) to choose from & then there is white to come back to for cleansing our palate. Love your bathroom after you finished. And your dishes look similar to my new ones. I can't wait for you to see them.
