For me, the colors blue and green represent the end of winter and the very beginning of spring. Things aren’t quite in full bloom, but they are just getting started. Sometimes the sky is blue, and the sun is shining. Green things are just starting to push their heads up above ground, like my tulips in my front flower bed. Hopefully we won’t have what happened last spring. My tulips started peeking their little green heads above ground and then we had a really bad snow and freeze at the end April. That was it for the tulips. The same goes for the tomatoes we planted in the garden. The rule of thumb here in Colorado Springs is you don’t plant anything until after Mother’s Day. If you do, you run the risk of re-planting. That’s what happened last year. We had beautiful weather, so we planted early and ended up planting again. That is one thing I miss about living in Ohio where I am from. Leaves on trees should be about ready to pop now. Not here…trees remain leaf-less until the end of May. We have even had snow here at the end of May. I’ve been told it can even happen in June. I’ve not seen it snow in Colorado Springs in June, but I do remember snow at a little higher elevation than here during that month.
