Splash of Colour: February



This is the last Splash of Colour week of the project, designed to carry us through winter on a wave of colour.  Not only is Spring is just around the corner but we've also built up a fantastic stash of almost 600 colour-packed Flickr images to call on in the coming weeks should there be a grey dreary day.



I think the winter's effects are really being felt at the moment so if you fancy injecting some cheer into your week then seek out some colour. It doesn't matter what the colour is - a spot of blue sky, a child's drawing, a solitary flower in the garden - it's all good.



There are spring flowers in the shops and bulbs are peeping up. This week should be good.

Don't forget to pop a link to your blog here and link back if you're joining in with the colour:

Huge apologies - all the Linky Lists have been removed by the organisation that provided them with only one day's notice. I am trying to reinstate the list today (Monday 7th)

What a swansong you have there! Love all those colourful flowers and the pretty vases/planters. I'll be sorry to see the end of this idea but not sorry that hopefully by the beginning of March we may not need to inject colour into our dull days any more!

Belinda @ Wild Acre said...

Oh dear oh dear - link attempt total fiasco, far too tired after a day schlepping around London, could you delete and spare my blushes and I will try again tomorrow when I am more awake!! xx

Floss said...

These are so beautiful, although Son 1 kind of spoiled the post for me by saying :'Those are just like your gazunder, mum!' (see post, possibly tomorrow, for details if you can bear it). Just believe me that your photos are way prettier than my gazunder!

This has been a lovely winter brightener. Thanks for organising it!

Thimbleanna said...

Beautiful flowers Emma! Spring doesn't feel like it's around the corner here -- the wind is howling and we're in the middle of our worst storm of the season!

(If this is a dup comment, delete it -- my computer crashed when I hit send for the first one!)

Moogsmum said...

What a perfect way to round up your fabulous project - those tulips are so beautiful and I need to dig out my teacups to plant with bulbs right now!

Thank you for brightening up a dreary few weeks :o)

The last splash of colour, it's been lovely, thank you x

Maggie said...

I joined in with this months ago but didn't bother adding myself to your list until today. My splash of colour is there to be seen now... might do one for March though, but without the title, as March can be pretty miserable here in Norfolk, as it can anywhere.

Helen Philipps said...

Love your fresh spring flowers in all their different containers. Thank you so much for thinking of the splash of colour idea, Emma. It's been such a success and brought a lot of colour into a lot of lives this winter! Helen x

Tulips must have magical qualities..I met a blogger last week and on the way I passed a flower stand and decided to buy her some tulips. When we met she had a bunch for me!
I m enjoying their swirly brightness.
