‘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.

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.

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.
Nikon D300 with 18-55mm kit lens at 55mm, 1/100 at f5.6 ISO 200. Cropped and edited in Lightroom.

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.
