it's purple.

that was my exclamation when i spied this little purple blossom in our back yard.
how do you get a beautiful purple blossom growing in your back yard? its easy. absolutely neglect the yard for months, refuse to water or mow, and allow feral thistles to grow at random. and you too can have a beautiful purple thistle.
amidst tall, dead yellow grass.

  1. Ooh, great shot! Thistles are such a lovely shade of purple--they get the short end of the stick in being called weeds, in my opinion. And yellow is purple's complement, so, really, you're just letting the yellow grass and purple flower accent each other. ;)
