Colors of Spring: Color Palettes from Spring Flowers and Foliage

February 21st, 2012

As the icy grip of winter closes in tighter many begin to dream of spring. That time of renewed growth and warmer days that tends to draw us back outside and into nature’s waiting open arms. With the seeming promise from the old groundhog that we will more than likely be seeing a few more weeks of winter, we thought our readers could use a little piece of spring a bit early.

So we have prepared an inspiring showcase of not only photographs which highlight the colors of spring, but we’ve also created color palettes from the pics of spring flowers and foliage. So take a look below, and fill up on the palettes and creative energy that Spring has to offer. We hope you enjoy these colors of renewal.

Flowers are largely considered an instrument of beauty. This is due to their vivid colors, shapes and sizes that are ever so interesting
