Colors and Spring Flowers

Spring is my favorite time of year. It's perfect sunshiny weather just before the sauna temps hit Austin and everything turns a lovely shade of brown. Lucky for me, my neighborhood is full of folks with serious green thumbs, so many gorgeous flowers everywhere you turn. I torture Bronco on our walks stopping every other yard to snap a pic of these colorful things.

Red flowers are considered to be vibrant, passionate and demanding to be noticed, red is the color of love and romance. Red flowers symbolize courage, respect, constancy, and admiration.

Orange is bold, passionate and full of life.

Peach Roses are all about appreciation, sincerity, gratitude and modesty. 

Yellow flowers burst with happiness. They symbolize the bonds of friendship, the taste of success and pride. 

Pink carries with it the connotation of grace and elegance, as well as sweetness and poetic romance. Dark pink is symbolic of gratitude and appreciation, and are a traditional way to say thanks. 

Lavender flowers signify youth and elegance, grace and refinement. They have a delicate, feminine and old-fashioned touch to them, even when contained in a decidedly modern bouquet.

White flowers can mean reverence and humility, purity and innocence or sympathy for a bereavement.
