The Bus Came By

‘Purple’ is the theme for Cee’s latest Midweek Challenge. Since I dished up some purple wisteria not so long ago, I looked beyond flora for inspiration.

I found it in this quilt, which was on display at an exhibition in Nantes a few years ago. The subject is naturally appealing for one such as me, and there is definitely purple in it.

Wild Purple

These unusual purple flowers were in a seed mix we sowed in a raised bed a couple of years ago.

The Purple Peacock

Purple and violet are the key colours in this wall-hanging of a peacock, quilted by Madame and now taking pride of place in our daughter’s new home.

Macro Moments: Week 23 – Purple

Don’t ask me what plant these berries are from. All I know is that this photograph was taken a few years ago in the Botanical Gardens in Sydney.

Thursday Doors: Le Mans

Spotted on the way to dinner in the centre of Le Mans earlier this week:

I was struck by the symmetry of the ornate decoration and the (very) purple colour of this door on an old office building.
