When the deep purple falls over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky –
In the midst of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh . . .
I think it pisses God off if you walk by
the colour purple in a field somewhere
and don’t notice it.
Since purple is a mixture of red and blue it has both warm and cool properties depending on the shade, of which there are many: lavender, lilac, magenta, fuchsia, puce, wine, mulberry, orchid violet, plum, eggplant, indigo, amethyst and mauve. . . While I was photographing the flowers for this post I was often asking myself, “is this purple or blue”, or “is this purple or pink?” I don’t think I’ve ever given the color purple so much of my attention.

Inhale the beauty
Violet is the color of the Crown Chakra located at the top of the head and is associated with Divine Wisdom. It is a color often used in mediation.
Violet has the shortest wavelength of
the spectrum. Behind it, the invisible
ultraviolet. Roses are Red. Violets
are Blue. Poor violet, violated
for a rhyme.
This is a lavender cream filled dessert that my sister ordered while we were in France, and it was dee-licious!
