It’s here. Spring! And it arrived in Toronto with an unbelievable temperature of 25˚ Celsius. (77˚ Fahrenheit) Considering it is still March this warm weather is just not the norm for this time of year. The elevated temperature makes for the sudden burst of spring flowers rising up from the ground. The colours of spring have arrived! Inspiration grabbing hold of me, I decided to take a walk through my neighborhood with my camera and Benjamin Moore Colour deck in hand. Climbing (precariously!) through some of my neighbours’ yards I took photos of spring flowers matched up with a Benjamin Moore paint colour. Some kind neighbours even toured me through their backyards proudly showing me their beautiful spring flowers. Thought I would share with you too.
