A Year of Purples and Violets

It turns out our country is nearly purple – an equal mix of red and blue. This is more and more evident as we anxiously await election results.

In the meantime I went looking for purples and violets and came up with these photos from my archives.

In January – a lifetime ago – we visited the Seattle Aquarium and I found a purply vibe in this fish tank.

Lavender comes in all colors, shapes and sizes, this one deeply purple with a violet tassel on top.

I’ll close with a couple of wildflowers I found while hiking this year. I don’t know the name of the first one but to me it looks both fragile and strong at the same time, determined to grow up out of dry ground.

The Pacific Bleeding Heart also appears fragile but thrives in the moist lowland forests of the Pacific Northwest.

And that will do for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge, Purples and Violets.
