#246 Purple


Purple violets! My daughter has a green thumb when it comes to growing African violets! Just one small plant has so many flowers it is impossible to put them all in one image. So I picked these by chance but they all are beautiful!

  10. I was TAGGED by Mary Lo and here are the rules:
    •Go to your photo folder on your computer
    •Go to the 6th folder of photos
    •Go to the sixth picture
    •Put the picture on your blog and a description of it
    •Invite six friends to join the challenge
    •Link them in your blog
    My selections are by random. I selected a site, Danudin’s” and counted down six, and then another six and so on.

  13. It is truly beautiful. The petals are almost translucent. So clear and sharp you can see the hair on the stem. Wonderful!

  14. Seems like a Chinese calligraphy rather than a photo, very artistic

  15. I used to have a green thumb too. I don't know what happened, but it's changed. I had about 4 beautiful african violets in my kitchen that were the envy of all who came over. I really wish I could get my green thumb back!
