The Color Purple

Purple Violas
Phlox
May Night Salvia 

Earlier this summer, I posted photos of my garden in full bloom. Yet as the record temperatures and drought continue, one hue has proven most resilient, the most regal of colors: purple.  Every shade of lavender and violet has thrived while others have withered. Perhaps Alice Walker was right, "I think it [ticks] God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it." (Note: Pardon my paraphrasing; this blog is rated G :)
