|My "Playground of the Pacific" Spring Palette|

The palette I chose -- gold, blues, reds, and what I'm calling "sand" -- are vibrant colors (well, except for sand, but I like having a neutral in there to balance the others) that contrast my current dreary winter surroundings. Virginia has beautiful colors for most of the year, but in the winter everything seems so dull and grey, and not exactly inspiring. I need a punch of color, or 2 or 3 or 4! Really, just throw 'em all at me, I can take it.
