What About Purple?

Has that thought crossed your mind?
Where are all the "Purple" flowers from your trip to Longwood Gardens?
 
Well I'm glad you asked.
I saved them all for today!!
So here we go...All the Purple from our trip on April 24th.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I love day trips, we had the most amazing day.
We visit Longwood Gardens several times a year.
We have never been disappointed.
 
Do you enjoy day trips?
Do you tend to return to the same places over and over
or venture out to explore new places for your trips?

  4. I could just drink in all the purple flowers--too beautiful! I especially love the close-ups of the purple tulips. Purple is my favorite color--always has been.

  5. That middle, wide open tulip, is your purple and my yellow combined to make the perfect flower!!

    Just wandered through Mt. Auburn Cemetery this weekend...a must to revisit each season - so peaceful and beautiful. I think I'm more of a "returner" than a "find new places" kind of a gal...something about seeing the familiar evolve, and seeing how I evolve...I rarely leave a place thinking I discovered everything it had to offer!

  6. That's a purple lovers dream! I love, love, love that second pic! My daughter and I love going on day trips to places we haven't been before around here. There is so much to see in our own "back yard."

  7. Gorgeous flowers. I love purple flowers too. I always purchase purple flowers every year to plant. Purple petunias, snap dragrons, lilacs, and some others I don't remember the names.

  23. LOVE 'MY' PURPLE FLOWERS! - ty!!!

    I miss day trips. Even when I have the $ to travel, I don't have a travel companion. I looked into trips through the community center here - there's one even on my upcoming birthday - but, ahhh, I'm five years too young to 'qualify' ...

  24. I love your day trips and the pictures are so beautiful. For now I will just enjoy your trips and hope to get out for some fun moments too in a few weeks. I just loved the flowers and again a great picture of the two of you!
    Blessings!
