One Word Photo Challenge; Purple

Purple is probably my second least favourite colour (after grey).  I’m not sure why, I don’t buy things that are purple, I don’t have any purple clothes (apart from one dress) and I don’t seem to have many purple photos!  If only I had known about these challenges when I posted about a Purple Swamphen (that is actually blue!)

Here’s one from a weekly photo challenge a while back;

D'Oyly Carte Island at Sunset

And here’s some very rare photos, ones of me in a purple dress (by ZizzyFay)!

I think the colour might make me a Whirling Dervish!

Thank you to Jennifer for this challenge, Red is much more one of my colours, so I have lots to choose from for next week!

    Stunning sunset picture.What a pastoral setting that is.

    I never use to believe in garden fairies….until now.

      I have used that photo before…. I’m surprised no more of my sunsets are purple except that one!

      If you hadn’t been stolen away from your twin to America at birth by the fairies then you would have been told about them! All the boys used to wear dresses until they were 2 so that the fairies wouldn’t steal them. They must have seen through your disguise… Maybe it was the beard?

    Beautiful image and great fun pictures of you in purple. 🙂


  3. Sorry you don’t like the color! But I guess that just makes it more of a challenge 🙂 Thanks for contributing! That sunset is beautiful. I look forward to your reds next week! Love those birds in your other post, they would have been perfect for last week’s or this week’s challenge!!

    My little pet lamb is three years old all over again dancing as she did in Nana’s garden! Your purple dress reminds me of your wedding dress.

      Well spotted 🙂 Zizzy Fay made my wedding dress and the purple dress and the coat in the photo too. I have quite a few of her dresses. My graduation outfit was based on the same design too 🙂
