A Study in Purple
Do you like the color purple?? According to http://www.empower-yourself-with-color-psychology.com/personality-color-purple.html , “Having either purple or violet as your favorite color means you are sensitive and compassionate, understanding and supportive, thinking of others before yourself – you are the person others come to for help – being needed motivates you but sometimes people take advantage of you.
You are a gentle and free spirit. Your feelings run deep and you can be quite sensitive to hurtful comments from others, although you would never show it…you have a peaceful and tranquil quality…You are usually introverted rather than extroverted and may give the impression of being shy although this is not the case.”
We’ve had a lot of purple on the farm lately, mostly propagated by those things that I spend hours mowing down. They are spiky, intrusive, and relentless in their pursuit to dwell on this land. However, there is beauty, if just for a moment….
The purple dot in the middle of this abundant weed tells me this is probably the versatile Queens Ann’s Lace….
…as opposed to this, very similar looking weed, which is highly toxic (hemlock??) The lack of that purple dot is a HUGE red flag!!
This purple bed (and the two furry babies next to it) are missing the furry guy who used to lay upon it. (See https://haveadanehill.com/2014/07/29/morning-has-broken/ )
The purple flowers of wild blackberry bushes…
…bring a bowl full of deliciousness!!
The beautiful sunset on a night full of thunder and lightning. Gorgeous!
Purple is a beautiful color…don’t you think?!!! Do you see purple in your area of the world?
Thanks for sharing my morning…I hope yours is fantastic!! Tami
