March/April Inspiration

For the last few months, every blog I read seems to have done at least one post raving about Pinterest. I admit, I didn’t quite understand the hype. While the concept of a digital bulletin board is interesting, browsing through other people’s pins is less than exciting, and quite frankly I found that the website runs rather slowly on my computer. I’m still not someone who can unwittingly spend an entire day pinning and repinning, but I have found a use for the site: creating seasonal mood and inspiration boards. Each month I’ll begin compiling a brand new board of images that capture the feel of the month. Check here for a monthly sampling of seasonally-inspired pins, and continue on to my Pinterest for a further collection of images!

The beginning of spring is quite possibly my favorite time of year. Granted, I say that about every new season, but I feel confident saying that even winter’s biggest fans can’t deny the delightfully magical quality inherent in the slightly chilly sunshine and young green leaves that March and April reveal. My favorite part of the season, aside from the chance to break out spring clothing of course, is observing the variety of flowering trees. Fruit trees whose white flower filled branches resemble giant pipe cleaners, decorative trees that sprout pastel petals and bright green leaves simultaneously, branches full of pom-pom like purple sprigs. March and April are the lively, vibrant pops of color to January’s grey skies–perhaps that explains the reason December finds me playing with wool dyed in deep colors and knitting needles while April has me using far more brilliant watercolors on cotton paper. In my mind, it’s demure flowers and vivid hues that dominate spring’s approach.
