The colour purple

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

from The Colour Purple by Alice Walker. (Thanks to Spirits of Lena for this great quotation.)


  1. Purple has always held a special place in my heart. For one thing, it's the school colour of both the high school and the university I attended.

    Yesterday I found the loveliest purple thistle growing along the edge of the road, picked a sprig and brought it home to put in a vase. A tiny reminder of Scotland, on a windowsill thousands of miles away.

    Hope you and Jo are having a nice holiday.

    Cheers! Canadian Chickadee

  3. I think so, too. ;^) LOVE this one!!! ;^D

  4. Hi John,

    Talking of purple - God must be thrilled with me 'cos all I have done lately is try and take pictures of the purple heather. You left a week too soon - the heather is beautiful at the moment - the best I have seen in the 6+ years we have lived on Lewis.
