Purple

Purple is my favorite color, so finding something purple to post when Tom announced it as the week's theme was not difficult. Deciding what to use was the problem.

This purple hanging--fabric not stained glass--graced the chapel at our conference last spring.

Our purple picnic is a celebration of friendships present and those who have passed. We serve purple foods on purple settings. My purple batik tablecloth from India sparked the first purple picnic, when Grace and I surprised our friend Deb. Grace and Deb are both gone now, and we dedicate each purple picnic to them and to those others whose lives have inspired.

Donna Kay was busy making tuffets using rich batik fabrics this last summer. This one was mostly purple.

Purple Monkey Flower

Larkspur, I think

Penstemon
 

Lupine, and a few Mountain Daisies
 

Sunset at Liberty Lake
Other Headbanger members will be posting within the next 24 hours--I am early, not knowing what is on the schedule for tomorrow as himself has doctors I might visit with him. The others' links are in my sidebar. It will be interesting to see what they have found to head up their blogs in purple.
