Purple Beauty


Our apartment garden has been undergoing a little bit of change. We have a couple of new gardeners, and I noticed these new purple blooms planted recently. I love the intense shade of purple. I am looking forward to having a good look around with my camera.

Hope you are having a nice week.

Hi Evelyn, does that flower have papery blooms? I think it is called statice and it dries very nicely to make a long lasting decoration.
Hope the new year is shaping up nicely for you.

@Anne: Thanks. I agree, what a colour.

@origa-me: Hi Carole
I will have to check. Thanks - maybe I can steal some... just kidding (in case anyone in the building is reading this.

Whenever my Stan gets me a bouguet it usually has these beauties in it. I love how the little white flowers come out of the purple ones! so cool.
