Feeling Purple

 You all know I don't have a favorite color because there are just too many to choose from but noticed that I seem to be surrounded by shades of purple tonight.
 The Wood Hyacinths and the ferns will eventually inherit the earth, or at least my backyard.
 My Frank Klager lilac that takes a licking and just keeps on ticking.  That reminds me, the Gunera isn't doing well this Spring.  I don't think it was the Winter.  I think we didn't give it enough water last Summer.  There is still a sign of life but send your good vibes, please.
 New lavender nail polish because sandal season is right around the corner.
 Johnny Jump Ups growing anywhere they want.
 As are the petite, wild, Lily of the Valley popping out between the stones.
 An inspiration kit that has been languishing in my Etsy for a while so I re-listed it tonight.
A new Dark Star California Lilac for the garden this year.  I need to get this guy planted!
Have you been feeling any special color?

Beautiful flowers! My favorite thing about that part of the country is the amazing abundance of flowers. Sending good vibes for the Gunera - you could have made a skirt with that leaf from last year!

Lovely flower photos. I don't have a single lilac growing in my garden. I think I need some.

I'm so jealous of your beautiful blooms, I especially like the lilac.
I'm happy with anything in any color that's willing to bloom in my backyard. They take such a beating from the harsh sun out there.

Your blooms are so beautiful! Our Frank Klager is just budding out. You must have really good dirt for al your lovely plants. Things here are hard to grow as we have shale and rocks about 3 inches down so everything has to have new dirt put in. I am garden jealous!!!

Nooooooo not the dinosaur plant!!! I'm sending growing vibes!

Since pink is my fave color, I'm feeling that way because I get to see Shylee AND my sister this weekend!

I love all of the shades of lavender but I really love most colors. In the Spring, I think of corals, lime green and turquoise...and that's what I like to wear. Well, not all at the same time! hahaha! Happy May!

Hi Kathy, loved seeing your blooms again. No answers to what those thingys are??
Anyway, wanted to stop by and thank you for visiting Kathy's series today and your kind comment. I appreciate it more then I can say.
Sending a hug and have a great week.

You lilacs and purples are stunning! I have a difficult time growing lilacs as I have some deep shade. I will enjoy yours!

Turquoise is my favorite - my Dad and daughter's favorite too!

So sorry I have been away so very long; I have been so busy helping my parents empty their house, move into a retirement apartment and prepare my childhood home for selling this week! So glad to be back blogging. Lots of posts to catch up on!

Your flowers are so beautiful. Our trees are just beginning to get leaves!
