The Colors of Spring

I love it when the spring flowers start to bloom! Today’s weather is textbook spring – windy, sunny, cloudy, rainy, and cold all in one afternoon. Well, maybe not the cold part so much in California.

I took these pictures in my yard today. I already missed most of the daffodils that came up.  I have a vegetable bed and there are pansies popping up everywhere! I didn’t have to purchase them or get my hands dirty – they are growing wild from last year’s seeds. I love it!

One of my favorite color combinations is green and purple. Nature has got it all figured out.

And my favorite two colors since childhood are green and yellow. The freesias in the following picture are calling my name!

And there are purple muscari and blue forget-me-nots that are in the competition.

I’ll share my project with you in the next few days. But I can tell you now that it doesn’t require a sewing machine or a rotary cutter or math!

In the meantime, you might want to start collecting some of these:

You’re going to need a variety of “recycled” jars for this project. Stay tuned!

  1. Jody mentioned that you sent something out about the jars…. Haven’t seen it. Did I miss it?? I have this post on 3/18 and the next one on 3/25. Wanting to see what you did with the jars…..

  2. Such a beautiful garden! This inspired me to plant some flowers this weekend (hopefully, Texas weather is so confusing). And I love crafts that come from scraps and recycling!

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment.
