Spring Colors Delight and Entice

Tucson is bursting with bright yellow flowers that remind me of sun, fun, and the sweetness and joy of springtime. See these bush daises? They're in full bloom and that makes me so happy!

For more vibrant yellows, see the Palo Verde Tree that I spotted in my neighborhood. Aren't the gorgeous blossoms spectacular? 

This type of tree looks entirely different without blossoms. See what I mean by following the link below to my other blog, ( It's a picture taken only a few weeks ago.

I adore colorful spring bouquets, especially those that include daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths. 

Close your eyes, and envision the delightful sunshine yellow, dusty pink, and delicate rose of springtime blooms and imagine the aroma of sweet flower scents floating into the air. 

When I think of spring, I think of my childhood family garden. In spring, the purple and lavender hydrangeas would beckon to me with their eye-catching colors. What’s your favorite springtime flower and why do you think you appreciate it so much? Do you associate memories and colors to spring?

Spring has always been one of my favorite seasons. By Easter time, women have replaced dark winter hued clothes with spring tones of pale green, soft pink, baby blue, lavender, peach, and creamy yellow. Many men have gotten with the "spring" color program too. They find these shades joyful, soothing, and nurturing as well. 

I like to wear pastel colors interspersed with deeper shades throughout the year, because of their soothing effect on me. What special color or colors do you like to don in the spring? Do you have a new spring dress, shirt, pair of shoes, or hat? Please comment below.

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at the Pantone Color Institute advises "the Spring 2016 Color Selection was influenced by the world of art, new global doors opening, and the desire to disconnect from technology and unwind." Want to see a color chart that features buttercup, rose quartz, peach echo, serenity, snorkel blue, limpet shell, lilac gray, fiesta, iced coffee, and green flash?

This spring take advantage of milder temps to participate in springtime activities with your family, friends, or by yourself. Go on a picnic, plant a home garden, and enjoy fresh spring colors. These activities are free, fun, and relaxing. In fact, think of warmer weather as an invitation to drink that morning cup of Joe outdoors. 

Think about your favorite springtime color.
Recall a spring color memory that you cherish. Envision it now.
