Straight up! The best part of spring for me is the bright vibrant colours that pop up all over the neighbourhood. With all the restrictions, we’ve been doing a lot of walking lately and wow, are the gardens ever amazing! I wish I knew all the names of the flowers that we see, but there is everything from to azaleas to hydrangeas, all in full bloom!
There are so many beautiful colours like fuscia and orange, but I’ve decided to challenge you with the colour purple for May’s Color Challenge.
There is so much in the store that works with purple and it is just such a FUN colour to work with.
I’m finding it difficult to take photos right now because I am just so swamped with work. I did manage to get my daughter out in the backyard for a few pics though and she was wearing my purple jacket!
