There is something so soothing about early spring’s pastel colors, like hand-dipped Easter eggs nestled under bushes or resting on branches throughout the garden. Nature is just waking up after a long winter nap.
But as the days get longer, and summer arrives, it’s like Mother Nature ups the intensity of the colors around us to match the heat coming our way. The countryside is sprinkled with bright flowers, like a handful of confetti thrown all over.
The season’s gelato-like shades of raspberry, lime and coconut, as well as hydrangea blue, remind me of festive summer parties, summer camp, heavenly bouquets of just-picked flowers, happy prints on diaphanous clothing and luscious, multi-colored accessories.
Welcome back, summer! We’ve missed you!
