beautiful! I always love a hint of purple- learned its significance years ago by seeing an aubergine hurrican in Bunny William's living room. It was the only aubergine in the room and it just made the room!

happy weekend!

This cactus is so wonderful, but I like also the little lilacs :)

I think that quote was one of my favorite learned in four years of college and three of grad school.

So, yes, I love your purple :)

What a beauty berry! I've never seen anything like that before. So cool. Great photo of the cactus flower too!

For years, I did not like anything "purple"...maybe it was because of the gaudy cheerleading uniform I wore in Jr High. But now, I understand the how a touch of purple can really MAKE a statement.

Interesting quote...
