Shades of Autumn Challenge: Purple









I managed to uncover some purple in my yard but it required me to think a little.  Autumn usually means to me yellow, orange and red.  Imagine my surprise to find that purple is a fall color-honest!! This photo above is one of my wild dogwood trees.  


We planted this weigela bush in our front garden for its beautiful pink flowers in the spring.  Little did I know that I would discover purple leaves in the fall, thank you little shrub of mine.


This is a shawl that I knitted this summer and has been my "go to" shawl to wear during the chilly mornings.  It is wool and it is warm.  It is wonderful.

Looking forward to seeing everyone else's purple themed photos.

  12. Those leaves are so pretty, and I love your shawl! I wish I were that good at knitting, but sadly only things that are plain and square can manage to make it off of my needles!

    Thanks for taking part in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge :)
