THE COLOR PURPLE AT THE FARM


"I think it ticks God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it..."
                                  -Alice Walker


"The purest and most thoughtful minds are those which love color the most..."
                                  - John Ruskin


These photos were taken at the farm.  It's some basil that sprang up randomly near the garden and a purple, wild, morning glory type vine that also randomly sprang up.  It's almost like nature is giving us the colors we wanted, ha.

Not much left for colour here outside of the leaves and those brazen chrysanthemums.
