The Colour Purple

Purple is taking centre stage in my perennial beds this autumn:

From a soft more pink than purple, to pinky purples, to classic purple, to shades of almost blue.

They're all here and I can't help but gaze out at the last varieties of flowers that are blooming uncomplainingly. They are the final blaze of colour before mid autumn arrives in all it's leafy coloured glory. Ah, summer and autumn. You are my two most favorite seasons. Please stay as long as you would like.

What is your favorite season?


  1. I love the accent of purple with the colors of Fall. My favorite for sure!

    Fall is my favorite season hands down.

    We were married in October and my sister wore a purple dress. :)

    Great minds.

  2. Awwww!
    So lovely. Wish I could zip over for a spell to admire, share coffee and life for awhile!

  3. Such beautiful flowers! I also love summer and fall! Even though it's been a bit colder than I would like! :)


  4. Beautiful photos, as always, Deborah.

    I hate summer and cannot wait for it to be over. in no more hot, steamy, muggy weather. Our leaves are beginning to change, but I'm waiting for the crisp cool days to really set in. Fall is my favorite season by far.

  5. Oh. My. You are making me soooo homesick. I am going to have to figure out a way to come visit you on furlough!

  6. Joanna, you and your family are more than welcome to come and visit us. We would love it!!

  7. Hello pretty Deborah, lover of purple!
    I hope THE THREE arrived at your house. I sent them a week ago today. Debbie in Oregon is excited to get them next. Now, when you blog about them, let me know and I will link to you! Instead of an herb or pressed flower, you could slip a pretty photograph in the pages. We're thinking that sending herbs and such across the sea might not work. Frances will probably empty the book of all things organic before sending the parcel across the sea! Customs, you know!
    Sending your happy Wind in the Willows fall feelings!

  8. Oh these shots are incredible. I used to say without hesitation that Autumn was my favourite season, but now I'm not so sure. I do love the snow- the more of it the better, even if it does prove too much for our little infrastructure very single year! And I did love this past summer, with lots and lots of time in the sea, especially better now that suns are old enough not to have to be hald by the hand continually! And in Spring you realise that your down jacket isn't actuallt part of your anatomy, which is also good... So now, you see, I can't decide!

  9. FABULOUS pics! Thanks for posting them. I love it when people post stuff likes this. Just makes me happy.

  10. Those are gorgeous!!! I love them all. Of course, purple is my favorite color, too.

    Favorite season? Spring, then autumn.

  11. What a gorgeous display of purple beauty!
