What are my favorite things about spring? Hmmmmm..... the longer days, the sun, the rain, the anticipation of summer --- yep, there is a lot to love about springtime! I love that spring is a transition from the cold, dreary days of winter to the warm, bright days of summer. The grass starts growing along with the flowers and trees, the sun shines till early evening, and the sounds of kids playing streams into my house from the park nearby. But, let's not forget about all that rain --- the rain that nourishes all those wonderful plants but also creates lots of puddles to splash in. I love a good spring rain shower.
The color challenge this month is all about the stuff that spring is made of:
At first glance --- that might not seem very much like spring to you. But to me ---- yep that is a Northwest Spring Color pallette all the way. The deep red is for all of the gorgeous Skagit Valley Tulips that are in bloom, the soft yellow for all the cheerful Daffodils of the season, and that brown ----- well, that brown represents all the mud that sticks around until the summer comes and drys us out! Yep, the Northwest is famous for it's rainfall and the spring is no exception!
My example for you today is created with some yummy Jillibean Soup New England Clam Chowder. It is full of bright yellow & red on some really "muddy" kraft paper! Perfect for our spring color challenge today!
So play along and have some fun with our spring color challenge. Post your creation here using Mr. Linky or in the gallery for a chance to win the April Prize!
