City and Colour

I continue to be awed by the colours of spring here in Winnipeg.  Every year, winter seems to wipe my memory clean of all the gorgeous, vibrant shades of nature.  Then it wakes me up again, like clockwork, to remind me as the days warm up. 

This tree looked so amazing next to the complimentary house colour, so I snapped a few shots for you!

It's almost like they colour-matched their house paint to their foliage!

Isn't this quaint and adorable?  You'd have to really be in the right place at the right time to get your house numbers in the sidewalk pavement...or be in with the city paving crew!

I hope your day has been full of colour!

Written with love,


  1. Beautiful photos..I really love those:)
    Have a wonderful day:)

  2. yes, winter does make you forget the colors - that's why spring is so magical, such a miracle. I'll never, never become bored with its marvels.

  3. How very beautiful. Color makes everything better!

  4. OMG yes! house number tiles in the sidewalk = amazing!
