What is it about the color purple? A color of passion, exotic, alluring, and a favorite color for many. Here then is the magnificent color Purple.
My birthstone, this was given to me for a birthday present by my son. And yes, I do treasure this stone.
The shades of Purple are fascinating, lending a mystic all their own.
Purple gives even cabbage an exotic look!
The flavor of purple in an abstract!
Thanks for the visit,

So why is it called “red cabbage” when it’s really purple?
You know Ivonne, I asked myself the same question. Didn’t get an answer of course. I could google it I suppose! 🙂 xx
Thank you Sheri! 🙂
I didn’t know purple could be so beautiful 🙂
It is a very vivid color isn’t it. I agree it is beautiful! 🙂
Great post Penny as I adore purple! 🙂
Thank you Ruth. It is vibrant isn’t it, rich and with the ability to evoke specific emotions I think! 🙂
fascinating colour. liked the bright pictures:)
I like dark purple, but I prefer darker shades of most colors anyway. I knew a young man in college many years ago whose eyes (I swear!) actually looked purple. He just said they were blue and had a purplish tint when the light hit them in a certain way. I ran into a woman about 20 years ago whose eyes also bore a purplish tint, but I think that, in part, was due to the lavender blouse she wore.
I would have loved to have seen the eyes of the college student. They sound amazing to me!
Purple called my name in this post! Lovely photos! 😀
I believe it probably did, call your name, that is! 🙂
One of my favorite colors. You made me smile on a day where I am looking outside and seeing snow flurries in late March. It reminds me of why I no longer live in the midwest full-time.
Amazing, the snow you’re having. It seems we skipped winter here. Weird to say the least, sorry about the cold weather, I hope at least it’s pretty to view LuAnn! 🙂
Purple & Penny are both wonderful colors!
xx 🙂 🙂 xx
And RoSy is the Rose that glows! 🙂 xo
Thank you barb, dear friend, I hope your weekend has been relaxing and fun for you as well! 🙂
Beautiful post, Penny! Purple is one of my favorite colors and I also have an amethyst ring my hubby gave me on Valentine’s Day years ago. It’s not my birthstone, but I love this gem, so thanks for sharing this beauty! Have a great Sunday!
Your ring sounds so beautiful, most especially with the sentiment attached to it Lauren. Thank you, I hope your Sunday is being the best ever for you also! 🙂 xx
Very nice, especially the Amethyst. Very powerful gem there…
It is Roxi, thanks! The reminder to my loving son, more powerful than anything! 🙂 xo
Lovely examples of the colour… love the waterfall…
Me too. Something about the beauty from within with the sun steaming down I think. So glad you enjoyed Bulldog! 🙂 xx
I love purple. It lends an exotic flavor to the mix.
Yes it does! Delightfully so. 🙂

You know that for him they are blurred
But he always gets hope
It is probably his second favourite word
Heliotrope an excellent second favorite word. You’re in great literary company my friend with the use of that word, James Joyce and Oscar Wilde to name but two. 🙂 xx
Love these words and images Penny.
Thank you Eric for your visit and your lovely comment.
Purple is considered a Royal color worn by Kings and Queens in days of old…it is also a color worn by Jesus as He walked here on earth. Beautiful color, my oldest daughter wore Royal purple when she married she said it made her feel closer to God that day. Beautiful gift from your son. (((xx)))
Thanks Len, I agree, a most beautiful color with very specific historical reference points (those connected with our personal memories, yours and mine, so very precious aren’t they my friend!)
hugs to you dear friend, Penny xx
That’s a big ole chunk of amethyst. Another great post Penny.
Thanks. I am lucky with the love of both my son and daughter, as you are yours Alastair, much love to you and your family also! :)xx
Thank you Penny 🙂
I love purple! I can’t wear it, but I do love it 🙂
I also Lyn! 🙂 xx
