While I touch the sky...

Most of the time purple isn't a color I wear. However its rich hue dazzles my eyes when I see purple in nature, or in a heavy velvet drapery or the iridescent gleam on the feathers of a swallow.


I think it pisses God off when you walk by the colour purple in a field and don't notice it. [from The Color Purple by Alice Walker]


Purple is soothing to the eye and just by looking at stalks of lavendar, purple Concord grapes, iris blooms, shiny eggplants or Italian plums, a whole 'nother world of sensory delights--and memories!--unfolds.


Purple is another wonderful choice by Blue for her Thursday MeMe, True Colours. Visit her for more purple photos--and join in the fun. Oh, and one more purple as we leave the sublime and enter the world of memories. . .

Lovely photos, purple is such a cheery color when it shows up in nature. I especially like your images of the irises and morning glories--what beautiful flowers.
