It’s Purple Week

Leave a comment

Let’s talk about purple today…or is it violet….or is it lilac…or is it lavender…or maybe orchid? Whatever you call it; it certainly is beautiful and eye catching in the garden. Everyone has a different word to describe this color that’s simultaneously warm and cool. It’s the most intuitive of all colors. It can be rich and royal like the purple velvet robes worn by royalty so many years ago or it can be soft and delicate like a young girl’s accessories. It can be mysterious or associated with spirituality or it can even suggest romance or creativity or even moodiness.  Lighter shades can be precious or refined. Sounds like a rainbow all of its own. Perhaps that’s because of the conflicting red and blue base – a little color theory lesson in there. What a fickle color! But fun.

Have a good week.
