Photo Hunters ---- Purple

Welcome to Saturday’s Photo Hunt by Tn. Chick. The theme this week is purple. This should have been a very easy one for me. Purple is my favorite color and half my closet is in some shade of purple. Put, I actually planned to post several photo’s of some purple houses I found during our travels.

Regrettably, my PC crashed this week. I was not as careful as I should have been about backing up my files so all my photo’s are now in Limbo waiting for our local computer whiz to have time to try an retrieve them. Only time will tell.

So I had to go back to some old CD’s looking for some purple. These shots are all several years old but I like them and hope you do too.

First is my Mother dressed for a costume party as a bunch of grapes. By the time this was taken a few of her grapes had been picked, err, I mean popped.

Next is some purple flowers I found at the botanical gardens in San Diego. I had never seen them before or since. They look like cabbage to me. Can anyone name them for me?

To join in the fun or just enjoy all of this weeks shots visit


  1. Hope you get your pics back soon!
    Great choices for the theme, the grape custom is fun!
    My pic is up, happy weekend!

  2. All that purple goes with your purple blog. Great choices.

  3. Oh, wow! I love the cluster of grapes. What a fun costume! I'll bet we won't see many of those during this PhotoHunt.

  4. I adore her costume....what a great sense of fun and charm she must have. And the flowers are super.

    Mine is posted now...if you can, come on over to say howdy!!! Happy Saturday to you.

  5. The balloon costume photo is great.

  6. I would freak if balloons popped all around me! But I love the color!

    Yes, those plants are a decorative cabbage. I've never seen such a lovely lavendar before.

    I did purple, too. I hope you have time to see!

  7. Your grape mommie is too cute!

  8. Oh, I hope you get your photos back! When our PC crashed we were able to retrieve most of them, but some of them were irretrievably damaged.

    I absolutely love the photo of your Mom as a bunch of grapes! What a creative costume.

    Thanks for joining up on photohunt, I've enjoyed my visit here.

Thank you for stopping by my site. Without your visits there would be no incentive to continue posting. So, having you here and reading your comments is the highlight of my day.

I regret that time does not always allow me to return visits to everyone who stops by, but, I will certainly do my best to get to everyone. I will definitely answer any questions you leave me.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
