My favorite color! Purple is the subject for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week. Around the house and in the garden there is a liberal sprinkling of the color purple and, when I go out and about with the camera, that particular shade always catches my eye.

Also in Millennium Park, Crown Fountain in the depths of winter.
Butterflies love the chives that are growing in our garden! It’s the only reason I keep them; the color purple and the fact that they attract butterflies. The trouble is they’re taking over; the chives that is. Every autumn I dig them up but the seeds drop and every spring back they come in even larger numbers!

Back to the garden again and an Iris with the rather saucy name of Street Walker that did outstandingly well this year.
