Below are a few photos from sometime over the past month. They all depict one of my favourite colours - purple.

Before: This is an unfurled clematis blossom found in Frank's back yard.
During: Clematis in bloom. One of the prettiest purple flowers on the planet.
After: Once the clematis bloom has come and gone, this is what remains. Can you tell that I was having fun playing with Frank's new 100mm macro lens.
Also found in Frank's back yard. These leaves have the uncanny ability to appear purple, brown, red or green depending on the lighting.
Wild chicory is one of my favourite wildflowers. I find it in my local park and just about anywhere else I wander.
Although it's considered a weed, I quite like thistles - maybe not in my garden, which is where I found this one, but it's loved by the goldfinch and I wouldn't complain if they came to visit.
The purple bellflower shot in low light. This one is for you, Adrian!
I'll be around for visits as soon as time and circumstances permit.
