Nature Walks – Pretty in Purple

There is so much beauty all around. We just have to open our eyes and open our hearts to see it all and really appreciate all that is here for us to see. Often, we don’t even have to go that far to see what’s right outside for us, just waiting to be discovered. Yesterday, I gave you some beautiful orange and yellow flowers. Nature Walks – Pretty Orange and YellowΒ Flowers Today, I give you some pretty purple flowers.

These irises are my own irises in my front yard.

This salvia is in my front yard too.

These are from my neighbor’s yard.

Today, I say color your world purple. Have a very beautiful, purple day.

  1. My favorite color! Every spring I go wild collecting purple flowers for my garden — petunias, browallia, alyssum, bacopa, violas, lobelia, verbena… I have to remind myself to throw in some pink, blue, yellow, white, and red so I won’t have a totally monochromatic garden. I read somewhere (can’t recall where) that bees prefer purple flowers, so that gives me another excuse to indulge my love for purple.

  2. I love purple! We have the little irises spreading like a carpet at the edge of the marsh near our house. My mother always called them “Japanese iris.” Whether that’s really the name for them, their exquisite, delicate form does remind me of watercolor brushstrokes in a Japanese painting. Thanks for sharing the beauty. πŸ™‚
