“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” ― Alice Walker
Winter is slowly staking its’ hold on the Western Cape. With rainclouds looming overhead, interrupted by intermittent bursts of sunshine, my garden seems to be hanging onto it’s splendour for the welcome downpours. Always a delight after a gentle cloudburst, the garden is alive with evocative sights and smells and the feeling of freshness no matter what the season.
Purple is my favourite colour – calming and intriguing with it’s mystical and spiritual qualities, it’s also the colour of royalty. I’ve planted it in abundance.
