Color Spots Challenge: Fresh Spring

I find the colours at this time of year so spectacular in my part of the world.  Now, I know nothing about flowers or plants, but there is something about the zillions of shades of green with vividly coloured flowers popping through that amazes me. We live in a rain forest and there is often a lot of rain at this time of year so the dazzling green and bright colours are a contrast against the grey skies that accompany the rain! I know that many of you are probably well into summer, but we are still in spring mode up here. Weather is warming up, but the beautiful greens and pinks are still everywhere! Here are a few photos that inspired me.

I chose a photo of a friend’s daughter. Here is the challenge page that showcases some of these fresh spring colours. Somehow I ended up not going with vibrant colours, but you just never know where inspiration takes you!
