Sunday Challenge " The Color Purple"

This challenge was a lot harder than I thought it would be. I knew I could get pics of purple flowers but I wanted something a little more creative, not sure how creative .....but here we go.This is the sign over my hairdressers door. I was driving by thinking purple and there it was. Of course I had to go in and tell her what I was doing she would have thought I was nuts, her and another girl were sitting right in front of the open door.......well I won't go any further down this road, suffice it to say I could have almost heard her comments!I found this one at the children's playground, funny how you can drive by something every day and not notice it. I was going home from work when I came out of my fog immediately pulled over and walked back to get a shot.
I can't tell you what happened to this pic but the whole point was the monkey anyhow. How cute is that????? Look forward to seeing what you all came up with, have a wonderful day.

There's those petunias I like! The playground pic is really neat, and of course your granddaughter is precious!

The playground shot is great.
And the flowers show a great variety in shades of purple in the differing light.

I forgot to introduce the child with the monkey her name is Isabella and she is Dave's Grandaughter....I don't know what you call extended family I guess she is my step - grandaughter at any rate she is priceless and really photogenic so you may see her on here for future posts. Isabella is also related to Shirley over ay Ride A Good Horse what would she be a great niece??

Thanks for visiting me. Kudzu is a vine, I believe it is Japanese in origin, that grows on just about everything around here. I'm fortunate to live just down the road from the place I took my photo!
