I'm glad you could stop by this week to see what's blooming in my garden. It just so happens that a number of plants flowering right now are in shades of purple.
I have Centaura commonly called perennial bachelor buttons in the blue variety (montana) and amethyst dream. (top right)
Iris pallida smells like grape crush soda and has fabulous foliage without the flowers.
Tradescantia or spider lily in a purple and blue is one of those plants that travels around by itself. Easy to pull out if it ends up in an unwanted place.
My husband brought me in a big bucket of wild lilacs that I've put on the kitchen windowsill.
A new cake recipe I tried from Mennonite Girls Can Cook called Queen Elizabeth Cake was so delicious and moist from dates in the batter, it was gone before I could remember to take a photo of a sliced piece. I'll definitely be making it again.
Thanks to everyone who came around to link to Mosaic Monday!
