purple to my eye
You should see how many other purple flower pictures I have in my photostream. I wasn't happy with a single one of them that I thought I could use and was truly purple. Some look bluish and others that I thought looked purple don't when photographed. Light and color are tricky devils.
Went out to the backyard this evening and tried to get something I would be happy with. This is the result.
