Shades of Purple.........

I didn't realize how many purple flowers we have in the garden. Here are some of them:

I don't know what this is called, but the bumble bees just love it:



Bachelor's Button:



The purple clematis, flowering for the second time:



One of my hosta's with a purple flower:



Lavender:



Lupin:



Pansy:



I don't know the name of this plant, but I call it a Martha Stewart plant, as it has those yellow/green leaves she always goes on about.



I don't know what this one is called either, but it comes in white as well.



There are many more purple plants, this is just a few of them.

Purple IS my favorite color. Can't stand that you've done this with gardening, Gill. I am "green" with envy... Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous.

Great pictures, and I envy your garden! Here in Arizona we got cactus and they don't change much during the year :-)

Checking in late tonight. Beautiful flowers in your garden. I noticed the lavender. My post today is all about it. Just love it and now found out it's good to keep away mosquitoes, according to someone I met today :)))))
