The Color Purple

I have to admit, purple is not one of my favorite colors.

But today, while outside, I found a large Thistle.

The flowers are quite pretty.

But WOW be sure sure to wear thick gloves when cutting them as...Ouch!

They are quite "prickly".

They sure make a pretty bouquet though!

I also picked up a few lavender bottles this past week.

Lavender...I do enjoy growing it!

I love its fragrance as well as beauty.

So I guess I should restate what I said.

Purple isn't one of my favorite colors but I sure do love it in flowers and glass bottles!!!

I love old bottles too! I see you posted a white wednesday. I'll have to check it out. I did a few awhile back really miss it!
Have a great Friday.

Have a lovely summer's eve ~

Gorgeous pictures, Debbie! I'm with you... I wouldn't have a purple couch or purple walls, but I LOVE purple flowers, and those bottles are gorgeous! You always inspire me to find new things to collect. :)
Have a great day!
