Lime green, sap green and green gold – nature’s spring palette

primrose yellow primula vulgarisWith the turning of the seasons there is a change in the light levels. The animals and the plants respond, but I think human beings, even living within a 24-hour artificially lit world, sense the change.

The scarf I started in the first week of March (see Image Translations) has ended up with the final colours pale pink, light blues and a bright grass green being added as the spring sunlight has started to pour through the window. Sap green, lime green and pale yellow with a few white highlights are the colours of my spring garden and they are just the dye colours I’m mixing up. I know I’m a human being, but I also feel I am still very much on nature’s continuum.

    1. Thank you. It’s such a relief to see the first lime greens of spring. There must be a traditional festival somewhere in the world to celebrate ‘new growth green’.
