Colors of Spring
Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night. ~Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke
In anticipation of the first day of spring I've been on the lookout for the color wheel of the season. Here are my favorite photos that just shout spring--like the masses of pansies above:
Yellow - forsythia
Green - the soft green of the weeping willow
Pink - saucer magnolias that so often bloom too early and then get nipped by frost or freeze
White - bradford pear blooms, like a spring snow storm
Purple and orange - someone described this sunrise as a psychedelic slurpee!
Purple - crocus
Red - Kentucky cardinal, our state bird and the perfect harbinger of spring around hereWhat says spring in your parts?
