Here in Mazatlan (just south of the Tropic of Cancer) there just isn't a spring the way I'm used to in British Columbia. I have to admit I'm kind of missing the tender greens and soft pastels of new growth. So I've been searching for some spring-like colours and here's what I managed to find.
Above is a close up of new seed pods from a tree that I've yet to discover the name of.
And below are two shots of weeds in a nearby vacant lot that have recently come into bloom. The pink one is a very tiny variety of morning glory. The white one is a poppy-like bloom on a spiny plant that looks a bit like milk thistle. The last one is a little wild flower that reminds me of the colours of spring daffodils and hyacinths.
