I just found some lovely spring photos in my archives that show shades of purple and lavendar at their best.
This was taken in a little village in France during a bicycle ride.
The irises are in the same village.
I took this photo of these violas in a garden in Paris. I have a fondness for them because my grandmother’s name was Viola, and I was named after her.
These pansies were in a Parisian garden.
I don’t know what kind of flowers these are, but they, too, were in a French village.
Here is another wisteria bush in France. Did you guess that we did that bicycle trip in the month of May?
I was lucky enough to visit the New York Botanical Garden during a Dale Chihuly exhibit. These glass balls and purple glass spheres were his works of art.
This flowering pot was on our patio in the house we just sold. You can see how close we were to the pond.
I took this photo of the wisteria at the local arboretum.
This is another Chihuly creation at the NYC Botanical Garden. Isn’t it just beautiful? It’s hard to imagine that everything in the boat is made of glass.
Jordan is still doing some traveling for business this week, but we were lucky enough to meet up in Cincinnati on Monday for a trip to Ikea. She will be writing a post about some things we saw that we liked. And this Friday she has a great chicken salad for you.
