“I think good dreaming is what leads to good photographs.”
Wayne Miller

Purple and red in combination is my party colors … and it always raises a couple of eyebrows.

  • There is only one nation with purple in its flag; Dominica.
  • Porphyrophobia is fear of the color purple.
  • Originally, the color purple came from a dye made from the mucus glands of a tropical sea snail known as the murex.
  • In Japan, the color purple signifies wealth and position.
  • Purple is the hardest color for the eye to distinguish.
  • Because purple dye was so difficult to obtain and expensive to produce, the color became the royal color in many parts of the world and is traditionally associated with royalty and power.

“I don’t have a purple problem,
I have a purple passion!”
Jackie Harmon Sweeney

“Be eccentric now. Don’t wait for old age to wear purple.”
Regina Brett

“When God made the color purple, God was just showing off.”
Mae Jemison

    • Yes, it really suits her, it an image from this years Carnaval de Nice. I manage to get some part of it before they suspended it. First because of the strong winds and then the COVID-19.

  1. *smile* Tho’ I firmly stated but a few weeks back that beiges and whites nearly sufficed in my colour spectrum . . . I am actually quite at home with your tones of purple . . . I seem to cherish it most in the garden: have a purple lilac very like the one in your photo and when choosing my pansies and violas for the winter show and masses of petunias for the summer beds oft let my fingers float across to the purple punnets . . . meanwhile stay safe, stay healthy . . . walk outside away from the throng every day you can . . .

    • I just love purple, just like you say in the garden .. such a contrast to all the other flowers. Purple is a majestic colour, I think it’s why I like it so much. *smile
