In a Vase on Monday – Purple Passion

“I don’t have a purple problem, I have a purple passion!” ~Jackie Harmon Sweeney

Recently I have been continuing my slow plod through July. Getting caught up in a bit of maintenance in the garden and in life….still tired and hermitting. So today just a small post with some lovely vases of purple flowers. I wanted to show off the purples in the garden, and a gift of flowers from my husband.

You might remember that purple is a favorite color of mine. So it is not surprising that I have many plants in varying shades of purple in this garden too.

I am growing April in Paris sweet peas with a wisp of purple on the edges. And my lavender is still growing and seeding. So a small vase with these made for a lovely show of the current front garden.

My husband found these lovely purple flowers at the grocery store. I am totally in love with them, but have no idea what they are.

Single stems with ruffled flowers that look like delphiniums, but do not grow like a delphinium. And they have a lovely spicy scent.

The full view of the table where I like to put vases is also sporting the fattening buds of the Clematis Chacewater I put in a vase a couple of weeks ago.

With this week’s lovely vase, I am linking in to the wonderful meme, In A Vase On Monday, at Rambling in the Garden.
