‘I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.’ - Alice Walker, The Color Purple
I found this little flower all alone among some water grasses when I went kayaking. Stunning.
Gay feathers. I had asked my former therapist’s daughter if I could have something from her flower garden when she died. These gay feathers were Lauren’s and they bloom every year right around the anniversary of her death.
Purple beans. A friend gifted me a packet of these purple beans. The plants have delicate purple flowers and the beans are much easier to pick since they are more visible than green beans. They do turn green when cooked, but I think they look amazing, raw, in salads.
I saw this clump of flowers (which look pink in the picture but really were purple) in a little wetland area on my walk to work.
I have no idea what these tiny flowers are. They were in a field of scrubby grass where we went tenting this weekend. They gave the whole field a purpley appearance.
The world is filled with such amazing colors! I hope you get to enjoy some too.
