Photohunt: Purple

Cerinthe major 'Purpurascens'

This week's photohunt theme is purple. I knew right off that I would post some flower pictures. The hard part was deciding which ones. I love the mix of colors on Cerinthe - from green to the dark purple bell. The bees love these. They will get in the small bell at the bottom and buzz. It is such as great sound in the garden.

So beautiful! I did flowers too and finally chose a wild one.

The first photo is my favorite one of the day--a beautiful purple.

Wonderful collection. Amazing how many shades of purple there are. Have a great weekend.

I must have that geranium! Off to search the internet for a source.

Except for the last photo all the rest I am unfamiliar and they are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing.

Purple blossom

I'm loving all these purple flowers showing up on the PH posts today!

My purple post is up

I don't think I've ever seen flowers like these before.

My PhotoHunt is New Shoes

Wow to all your photos but super wow to the first one -- don't think I've ever seen this plant but it's a beauty.

Nothing like the brilliant colours shared by nature! Great shots Marta.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Splish-Splash is such a good name for it.

Great shots.

They are all very pretty :-)


The last flower is so pretty. You have done a great job with the macro.


Hi Martha --

Glad I kept on checking back at your blog. Your purple Photo Hunt entry may be on the late side but it sure was worth waiting for. :)

Lovely flowers!

Wow Marta, these photos are fantastic! I especially love the first one. Great choices for the theme.
