In South Africa, spring is incredibly colourful and vibrant because the flowers which grow country-wide bloom in a variety of striking colours. Spring Day is celebrated annually on the 1st of September in South Africa as this is when the spring season begins in the Southern Hemisphere.
This season is anticipated and welcomed because it is the start of the pleasant, warm weather for which South Africa is so well known. The end of winter and beginning of spring has always been associated with rebirth, hope and love and is the time when plants regenerate, animals birth and the world awakens from the chilly winter season.
The colours best associated with spring season are pale blue, yellow and white, as well as other soft pastel colours. These hues can be seen in typical spring flowers such as daffodils, hyacinths and tulips which are recognised as the international flowers of spring.
