One Word Photo Challenge: Purple

November 13, 2013 parkway 024


Crowning arch of the rainbow,

Most etheric vibration of light;

You bring peace and insight, forgiveness and transcendence.


Amethyst crystal,

Balancer and protector,

Stone of clarity and knowledge;

You bring healing and wisdom to those who choose you.

Lavender, lilac, orchid, plum,

Living, growing, pure vibrant color-

Fragrance of peace and healing;

You bring delicious beauty to those who grow you.

November 25 cranberry preserves 002

Blending blue with red,

Ending and beginning the endless wheel of color;

Your every tint and hue a mosaic of quiet beauty.

Sept 10 2013 close up photos 008

Growing in fields of living rainbows,

From darkest purpley black

To lightest shade of periwinkle;

Maroon, mauve, cabernet, blue ecstatic May born Iris.

October 11 garden 004

Violets growing in springtime grass,

birthday and spring 014

Fields of lavender filling warm summer breeze with perfume,

July 28 2013 caterpillars 005

Juicy plums dribbling as I bite you,

Mauve hellebores poking through the snow,

March 11, 2014 garden 017

Lilac shrub bursting into flower as April warms,

Orchids blooming on the windowsill;

January 28 orchid 009

Beauty and happiness radiate in purple’s glow…

  1. A lovely and large selection of purple! 😀

    • Thank you, Becca 😉 Much of my garden ends up being purple or shades of pink each year. Hard to narrow down the shots- although that wouldn’t be the problem were the challenge yellow or orange…. Best wishes, WG

  2. So many beautiful purple finds! I love the lighting in the first one! and that purple flower against the hay in “March 12, 2014 CW 133” pops so gorgeously. Thanks so much for sharing!! 🙂
