The Color Purple

Prairie Verbena

I'm not sure what this is, but the bees and bugs sure loved it! 

Wine Cup

Prairie Onion

Wild Chicory

(this actually hasn't bloomed again yet, but I'm keeping an eye out for it!)

"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... 

People think pleasing God is all God care about.  

But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back."  

~Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982


  1. what a great quote! :)

    i dug up some purple verbena from my driveway (had seen it last year, then mowed it down by mistake - one poor little plant). so this year when it begann blooming, i dug it up and put it in a pot near the house. it is doing really well, and i'm loving it!

  2. Beautiful purple and I can't begin to tell you how many times I've watched that movie.

  3. so, so pretty! the wild chicory has just started to bloom out around here, and i think the queen anne's lace is thinking about starting to show her stuff soon.

  4. I love your purple flowers, especially the wine cup. I never saw that one.
    And your quote from Alice Walker fits beautifully!

  5. what happy blooms. purple is my favourite colour.

  6. Beautiful blossoms and one of my favourite quotes.
