P is for ...............Purple - Paris and Partytime

P is for Purple ... Purple has long had royal connections and been the colour of kings.



What about the Plant world and vibrant purple - buddlea - heliotrope - sporting their heady perfumes and adorning our gardens



This Bougainville was flowering at its best at the Eden Project in Cornwall during last summer.



..and wild foxgloves ,vetch and thistles run free in our hedgerows and meadows




P is for back to Purple our local Conservation Project in the Shropshire Hills to bring the hills back to a blaze of purple as the heather blooms



P is for Paris a favourite city of mine visited a few years back - always an eye catcher the Eiffel Tower - magnificent views from the top - see side panel




Street artists at every turn - showing incredible talent and flair - I love them and I could drink in the atmosphere for hours on end.



Not to be missed a trip on the Seine at night - another world as the boat slips through the hush of the night.




I took this picture of the Moulin Rouge - and we were able to view the foyer - the shows are incredible I believe but very costly - but I did buy a fridge magnet from a local stall - Ah well some day !!




Finally I wish you all a Perfectly Peaceful week ahead

  1. Love purple.
    But I'm shocked that Prince hasn't had the video taken down - he's notorious for doing so.
