April Colours

I often think about this time of the year as Yellow Season as a lot of the early spring flowers are yellow.

There are other colours out there though. Some pink, some white, a little blue …

There are colours to see in the new spring foliage too.

Having said all that, one of the most springy of the spring colours is of course green. The fresh brand new greenness of spring leaves is just delicious!

  2. I love this yellow season too. Here in Cornwall we add Gorse to your lovely collection. The Violets are lovely now and the bluebells just beginning as we’ll move from yellow to blue and pink in our hedges .

  3. Hi Suzy, I love your beautiful colors, especially the green. I am linking this post to an interview I’m doing of Sarah (toonsarah). She wanted to give you a shout out. 🙂
