I love anything colorful and I enjoy most colors out there, but I know that pink, purple and blue tend to be my favorite. I love wearing these colors and I enjoy spotting them in nature as well. Here are a few of my favorite colors that make me happy every time Mother Nature uses them on her color palette.

This has to be my most favorite color to find in nature: magenta. It really says, I’m happy!

Magenta and purple together look very pretty too.

Who can argue that all shades of purple look beautiful?

And fuchsia is nature’s burst of laughter, as in this pink water lily.

This iceplant is called lampranthus productus and I love its bright purple blooms in the winter. Yes, there’s a little yellow in the middle of each flower but I couldn’t resist featuring my favorite color for this theme.

Frost of dead leaves makes for an interesting color.

The same goes for frost on ice plants.
