As John Greenleaf Whittier once said,

“Swan flocks of lilies shoreward lying,
In sweetness, not in music, dying.”

In many cultures, the water lily symbolizes love, purity and resurrection. In Bernard Weston‘s painting, the red water lily adds an element of surprise to a blue canvas pond. The red represents love, the water represents purity and the depiction of nature represents resurrection or new life.

Inspired by water lilies, I went on Adobe Color CC and found these water lily color palettes:

Can you resurrect an old website from the dead and bring it to life with love and purity?
