Round Robin Photo Challenge--The Color Purple

The Color Purple.
There's a book about it, a movie about it and I hear little girls list it as their favorite color all the time. I even remember a time when Callie wanted purple pants, a pur
ple shirt and purple socks as her "First Day Of School" outfit (fortunately, we were able to tone that down a bit). Yet, despite its royal fineness, there is not very much purple lurking around my house.

Here's what I found:
my favorite hand lotion
some Mardi Gras beads left from the parade a few weeks ago and tiny wild violets growing in the grass.
I know that they are really just a weed, but they are so tiny and pretty. I just love them!

Hi Linda :)

Nice display of purple. I love the little purple weeds as well. It's so lovely in the middle of all that green. Purple is spring. Good job!

Always, Carly

Oh I love pretty weeds also! It almost seems sometimes that they are the only thing that will grow for me :0)
Have a great weekend...

Nothing wrong with weeds. If it weren't for them, my yard would be nothing but dirt! ;-)

Great Purple! I don't think of violets as weeds! They are beautiful flowers! Thanks for stopping by my place. Have a great evening!!

I like all the purple you have here! I have similar little wild purple flowers in my lawn and I am calling them violets, too. Why not? They are violet and they are pretty. :-)

Love your purples but I am loving the music.

Very good shots for the Round Robin, I really like the beads...and dont worry, here in Georgia, although we were under snow last Saturday, yesterday it was 72 and sunny!

The Mardi Gras beads made me smile, they just look festive and fun. Nicely done finding all different types of purples.

Violets a weed? Never, in my book. And lucky you - Mardi Gras beads!
