The Power of Purple

"Flowers are restful to look at. They have neither emotions nor conflicts." ~ Sigmund Freud
It is time for a little color... something to go along with the 60+ degree weather today. Purple has long been associated with royalty, power, nobility, luxury and ambition. It conveys wealth and sometimes hints at extravagance. Purple is also associated with wisdom, dignity and independence. I particularly like that aspect. It is creative, mysterious and magical. These were found in Williamsburg, blooming in summer.... the picture a promise of seasons to come. I hope you all find a little purple for your life today!

Not quite a purple cow, but ever so much better. Posted by Picasa
