Little Bits of Purple Delight

Azalea

It’s the time of year when you don’t know whether to wear a raincoat. a sunbonnet, or a winter coat. In front of the glorious Azalea, you can see that Mary Ann settled on her felt bonnet and a warm shawl, and she’s off to search for her favourite purple blossoms!

Aubretia

The purple Aubretia in the rock gardens is in full spate…

Periwinkle

…while the sweet Periwinkle trails around in the edges of the hedges.

Anemone

The dainty anemone emerges in the shady woodsy places,

Hyacinth

…and the overpoweringly sweet-scented Hyacinth towers over little Mary Ann.

Violets

Her favourite purple spring flower has always been the violet…

Tak

She brought a sweet tussie-mussie home for Mormor!

  1. Grey and purple look so well together. This is such a pretty post.
    How Kind of Mary to bring back a tussie-mussie back for Mormor.
    So far, we are still mainly in yellow flowering season here – daffodils, primroses in bud and cowslips are here and there. Soon, the purples will come out. What a wonderful time of year!

  2. What a lovely walk with Mary Ann, no matter what is going on in the world, the trees and flowers and birds don’t seem to notice. Our local Weeping Willow trees all have spring green floppy whips, the star magnolias are blooming, the Crocus and daffodils have popped up and the birds are singing. It’s comforting to have these things right now.

  3. Violets have been and continue to be my favorite flowers too. Yes, the combination of gray and purple/violet is stunning and Mary Ann’s shushed clothing help make her stand out in the glorious colors that abound in your spot of the world. Thank you! We’re about a month or more behind you but you’ve given us plenty to look forward to.
