Purple

Zoom zoom bloomity bloom! I blinked and now everything around me is blooming. Mostly purple things, but that's just fine because I love purple.

Wild lupine growing in my neighbor's field.


I don't know if you can tell but I'm surrounded by horses. Literally on all sides of me are fields and 3 out of 4 of those fields have horses.



I just love lavender and so do my honeybees. I planted 4 extra plants last year and they have really sprouted this spring. Looking forward to having a different kind of blossom.


Two colors of lilacs because just one isn't enough!


We've had a lovely warm and dry spell and the flowers are really going for it, especially the rhododendrons - I don't recall ever seeing such beautiful rhododendrons as I have this year. In fact I took my camera to work to sneak some photos of the house across from my office because it looks so amazing! I gave a sneak peek here on twitter, but will show my camera photos soon.

Hi Molly. I don't know you and I know that you don't know me, but my name is Molly and I love purple too! Horses are my favorite animal. :)
