Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

Now, this was a difficult Weekly Photo Challenge.  Purple.  Purple?  Yes there are flowers, but not as many as I’d thought!  But I found other things with purplish swathes and shades:

In my garden:

Lavender last Spring & Iris:

 

Petunia and a pansy:

 

Inside my flat – flowers from a wedding:

& a straggly bush permanently producing these dear little flowers:

In the streets around MtLawleyShire –

Purple Lantana – a terribly destructive weed, but controlled, makes a wonderful display:

& these  – I don’t know their names:

 

Native wisteria (terrible photo) & purple daisy:

 

& this – love these flowers with their purple centres:

Wildflower from last year’s Kings Park Wildflower festival:

Jacaranda in full flower outside my university campus:

This wall is no longer visible as flats are being built in the empty space, & I actually took the photo for the fabric tree ‘planted’ there:

And then – skies.  Perth, in Winter, has pale pastel skies in the east just after sunset.  Sometimes, I can capture it:

 

 

and this the last remnants of sunset:

and this – just after sunset and don’t look too close – my little camera really isn’t that crash hot at such astronomical distances & low light:

I think, perhaps, some stretch the definition of purple, but hopefully, not too much.

Hope you enjoyed 🙂

(& once again, Zemanta has come up with nothing – shall update links as they happen)

    Enjoyed all of them thank you 🙂 The skyscapes are wonderful really, and that Lantana looks quite innocuous! Have to say I am very Intrigued by that ‘adult shop’ sign! 😆

    • the skyscapes are my favourite, the lantana does look innocuous but really wreaks havoc if it escapes a garden or a gardener’s control and the adult shop sign? That shop has been on Beaufort street for a long time, so I’m guessing it does good business. You should see their window displays!! 😀

        I know how that PhD is so important and like any good boy, I sit patiently thumb in mouth, biting my tongue so as not to apply pressure… I’ve said before I want to be able to say I knew her when she got her PhD, but if you don’t shut up I’m going to begin complaining, how the hell am I supposed to learn from you if you post nothing? Now get back to work, get that damn PhD and then get out with the camera and please me… I’m beginning to demonstrated withdrawal symptoms…

        That’s alright as a young man I had to learn a patience that the body did not want, but one learnt it anyway, but thank God there was a women gathering something I could enjoy later on.. So continue to gather the photos, just don’t forget to share them with me at some later stage… remember like all things, a greater pleasure is experienced by those that have the patience… just remember I’m getting on in years and don’t have all the time in the world… so get to it !!!!
