Why purple?  I have to ask, why not purple?

It's a favorite color, in all it's variations.
It's the vibrant tone in flowers like lilacs, iris, pansy and crepe myrtle
It's the color of royalty
It's the color in iridescent dragonfly wings

It's the last  tone of color my eye perceives in the deep heavy dusk of an evening
It's the color of delightful foods and drinks
It's the color of the stains I had on my childhood clothes from picking and eating blueberries
It's the color of a pretty jewel
It's a brilliant fire in a diamond or a Swarovski crystal ornament

It's different, like me.

Note...I recently found MY purple notes (a poem) on another website that stole it. The person took my name off and tried to pass it as their own thoughts.  I don't steal from others and I expect the same courtesy from visitors too!

I ran into a poem at one of the quilt guild meetings and decided immediately I would add it to my web site, if I ever had one.    I recently found out who wrote the poem and have decided to display only a portion of the poem out of respect for the author's copyright.

I already love to wear purple-of course!   It's suits me just fine..  

I Shall Wear Purple,  by Jenny Joseph

When I am an old woman, I shall wear purple
With a red hat which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me
And I shall spend my pension on brandy and summer gloves.
And satin sandals, and say we've no money for butter.
I shall sit down on the pavement when I'm tired
And gobble up samples in shops, and press alarm bells
And run my stick along the public railings,
And make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my slippers in the rain,
And pick the flowers in other people's gardens ...

here's the ending of the poem:

But maybe I ought to practice a little now
So people who know me are not too surprised
When suddenly I am old and start to wear purple

red hat
The poem is also known as "Warning!" as well as other names.
