Board#147: Dawning of Spring

Aside from the last 24 hours which has been downright rainy and miserable, spring got on to a fantastic start in Auckland. And what better time with such an influx on tourists here for the Rugby World Cup. We simply couldn't have asked for a more perfect day to hold the opening ceremony on Friday. It was quite spectacular. I found myself waking up on Saturday morning palpably excited at the thought of summer just around the corner. It's so exciting to see the trees get greener by the day and plants start to blossom. I know we don't notice it as much here as you do in colder areas, but I cling to what we do get. I'm almost obsessively checking our new trees (that we've only ever seen in their winter bareness) for any sign of life... the sap has risen I've been told!! Spring brings with it a whole new freshness so I had to create a board full of the freshest yellows and greens in keeping with the new spring in my step! Happy Monday folks xo

Gorgeous board! I think (although the photo looks a bit different) that the cake photo might be from this wedding I featured. http://www.oh-lovely-day.com/2011/07/real-wedding-hannah-marc-rustic-yellow.html I love your spring inspiration :)
