“Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember it’s true, someone somewhere is thinking of you.”
Listening to: Here comes the nice by The Small Faces
Perfectly poised, packaged pristinely,
profusely poignant, pleasantly plain,
prolific pleasures, poetic promises,
purple petals, proudly proclaim.
I had not seen this flower until the weekend when I spotted it growing amongst other bushes. The plant itself was about 4 feet in height. As with other shots from the weekend it was captured in extremely windy conditions causing it to blow first one way then the other on its tall stem. I took about 12 shots and was pleased 2 turned out satisfactorily. Have not been able to ID it.

Despite the cold and frosty nights, these purple pansies are still peeking out from the leaf litter and adding a violet element to all the fall golds and reds. What I love most about pansies is not only their bright colors, but mercy, are they ever hardy! I planted these in early summer - and they've survived drought, torando, hurricane, hard, pounding rain, and now the first bit of frost. They won't last much longer -- but their seeds will be strewn wily nily around the property, and I'll probably find some of these purple pretties in the lawn, across to the vegetable beds, and hopefully, in other spots in my 'wild' flower garden. Whatever, it will be a marvelous surprise!
Today I begin my weeklong classes with Freeman Beard (fbeardart.com/). I'm looking forward to this week of art immersion as well as looking at landscapes with a 'new' eye. It should be fun -
Temps this week are on the rise again, teasing us once more with the last sighs of fall. Leaves are drying even more now, so when the wind blows, there's a wonderful rustling melody to the ear. Underfoot, the desiccated leaves have a definite CRUNCH, and in the mornings, wood smoke evokes feelings of warmth and coziness.
There is so much sensuosity to this season ... tart apples, brilliant leaves, wood smoke, crunching foliage, the nip of frost ....
And always, the fleeting nature of it all ...
Catch it while we can!
Have a great day!
I found this one buried in the archives.......
playing with light, color & glass in my garage...........

Taken at Emery Barns Park.
The flower was in purple color but when photographed it is more like a blue color. This is the flower of the bud in my previous post.
Can you help me with the id please?
