Colors on Monday: Purple



(This picture can be enlarged by clicking on it.)

Jen at Unglazed is hosting a mini meme, Colors on Monday. This week's color is Purple.

We have purple in our yard each Spring when our crocus bloom. The picture above is of Pickwick crocus.



It may be stretching the definition of purple a bit, but our Sweetness Rose looks purple to me. It has a wonderful fragrance as well.



But my favorite picture of purple is this photo of my Beautiful Bride-to-be and me. This picture was taken at my parent's house shortly after we got engaged. We were going out to dinner and the theater.
