Purple




I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.... People think pleasing God is all God care about.  But any fool living in the world can see it always trying to please us back.  

~Alice Walker, The Color Purple, 1982

I love purple too. These thistles look like the ones in the horse pasture here in Northern California. Except that the cone part looks almost like an artichoke on yours. Where were these growing? They look similar in Scotland too. Beautiful picture. Mumzie

My closest cousin loves anything purple. This color is also a favorite of UAE locals.

Beautiful, I think it's a variety of thistle but I'm not sure which one. That quote is one of my favorites.
