Purple Spring

Seeing a lot of purple this spring around here in Provence.


Wysteria, of course, as already discussed.


My lilac bush.


I don’t know the name of this bush. The flowers are more pink than purple but there’s some purple in there.


I thought I was focusing on the purple iris and would have the castle sort of fuzzy in the background but, oh well. The ruined chateau in the background is near us. There are lots of iris all over this area as they grow wild here.


Van Gogh painted in Provence and did many paintings of iris.

  1. Hi Linda, wonderful colours purple.. I suppose you are in Provence ! We might meet one day.. I am in Paris at the moment ..well staying in the suburbs with my friend Leesa.

  2. All those shades of purple…so beautiful! I love lilacs and miss having them. Its just too hot here to grow them.

  3. Lovely. I adore all that purple.
    We had radishes all through summer on the dinner table and my mother would set out a small dish of salt for each person to dip them in. Yum, you made me hungry and nostalgic now.
