Sunday Stills: The Amethyst Gardens

Who doesn’t love the colors purple, violet, or lavender? Next to white, they are my go-to colors in the garden! For Terri’s Sunday Stills, it all about Amethyst, or those lovely shades of purpley’s, so let’s look in the garden………..

First a little twirl of the lilacs is called for……..

Then a photo, that I watercolored in the IPHONE WATERCOLOR  APP and use for notecards in the Spring……..

and now for some flowers……..in the Atlanta Botanical Garden, Orchid House………this is a bromeliad of some kind…….

I found this Passion Flower Vine at the Oaklands Cemetery in Atlanta, GA, as well……How intricate is that?

And, this is one of my favorite photos, I took at the Great Dixter Garden in the UK! I use it for a notecard too!

  1. Lots of beauties here but the passion flower is particularly fascinating to me. When we lived in Illinois, we often saw/had grape hyacinths, always welcome harbingers of spring.
