Spring Colors



I'm no photographer (though I wish I were!), but I was making dinner the other night and I looked down and thought the colors were just so pretty I had to take a picture. One of my favorite things about spring is visiting the fruit stand. After a long winter, it's so nice to have a plentiful supply of fresh fruits and vegetables!


What is your favorite thing about spring?

Beautiful pic.

My favorite thing about spring--well one of them--the smell of rain and damp earth.

Tracy said...

I love your photo...expert or not!
I love the fruit and the warmth and the new growth and the pretty color of the grass and tress, and the...well, just everything! even the rains...

Lynn said...

My favourite thing of spring is seeing no SNOW anywhere (although that could change)! That is a great photo. The composition is excellent.

I'm with you on this. I gorge on berries when they are in season.

Lovely colorful pic!

I love my flower garden each spring. So many of my best performers are plants the previous owners put in, or ones I planted a decade ago. It feels like a gift every sping to have them continue to blossom beautifully.

Rebecca Bradley said...

Wow, I never thought a table of fruit and vegetables could look so good. That really is a pretty picture!

I love spring, I love the new green and I love the lighter nights. Everything starts to feel possible. New beginnings.

It's healthy to eat a colorful variety of food. :) Good job, Susan!

It's sunny with blue skies here today, and I was looking out over our valley and enjoying all the GREEN. And the birds outside in the trees are going crazy. It's fun to hear them so happy.

My favorite thing about spring is how everything just seems to blossom into life, lush and new. The very air is light and uplifting, here in the land of the air you can wear usually!

Joanne said...

We have a lot of farmstands near our home, and I love the fresh fruits and veggies that I'll get there soon. And I love the changing colors of Spring too, especially after the white-washed winter we had!

Brian said...

I just love the smells of fresh things! The pictures looks like it's right out of a cook book!

Michelle Teacress said...

That looks beautiful. Can I come to your house for lunch today? ;)
My favorite thing is the return of the color green.

Talli Roland said...

Oh, gorgeous! I love the colours.

My favourite thing about spring is flowers. I love it when the trees start to blossom!

DEZMOND said...

yep, that would be my favourite part of spring - colors from fresh fruit and veggies and flowers.

Lovely pic, Suzy!

Lydia K said...

I love the scent of the earth thawing out, and the burst of green when the leaves all start to emerge. That's my favorite color green!

The Golden Eagle said...

I love the colors, too. :) And the general sense that something's emerged . . .

Stephanie said...

Very bright and vibrant!! Love it!!! I was bummed when I made a salad last week...it needed a pepper and tomatoes and some other things and I didn't think and grabbed a red pepper...so red pepper, red tomato ave me a very red salad. It would have been so much prettier if I had grabbed the orange pepper instead!! LOL! I most definitely plan fruit salads around how it will look. Pretty dishes just taste better!! LOL!

Deniz Bevan said...

Gorgeous colours! Hmm, spring... well, when it finally comes, it's the warm weather and sunshine that I love!

Sharon K. Mayhew said...

Great picture!

To me the best thing about spring is knowing that there won't be anymore snow...for a few months.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

The end of snow. Yay!

I think the picture is great. :D

Dawn Simon said...

That's a beautiful picture, Susan!

I LOVE spring. One of my favorite parts is that the sun shines later each day. Up here in Washington, the sun sets so early in the winter!

Jessica Bell said...

Wow! Such vibrant colours! Unfortunately I don't like much about spring at all. I'm ahndicapped with hayfever and CAN'T enjoy anything :(

Madeleine said...

Fabulously alluring photo. Delicious, my mouth is watering. I love the fresh, crips air and the sparkly sunshine :O)

The Happy Whisk said...

Jackee said...

Yum! Delicious, nutricious, and beautiful! :o)

Have a lovely weekend, my friend. xo

Niki said...

That is a gorgeous photo! mmmmm I love asparagus straight out of the garden then lightly fried in butter. Tastes like peanuts. :)

Holly Ruggiero said...

I think that is a great photo. The colors are so bright. The return of color is wonderful.

Nas Dean said...

Wow! I love your spring colors, now can I share them with you? Please?

Trisha said...

Lovely pic indeed :) I love the colours!

Michelle Merrill said...

For the record, you can't say you're not a photographer and then post an awesome picture like that. It's a contradiction :) I do love the colors of food and of the new life spring brings. Thanks for sharing.
