Great purple list. Love those purple tulips. Love tulips but they are so expensive over here as we don't grown them over here. You can buy them only at flower shops and they can cost you a fortune.

Purple rocks. I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of spring and summer purples.

Besides Amethysts I don't like purple very much and on top in Belgium it is the color for coffin decoration and other funeral stuff, lol !

Shari said...

I love lilacs, too. When I was growing up, we had a big lilac bush outside of one of the windows. Smelling lilacs brings back so many memories.

Love this list---because of the illustrations. I love anything colorful. Crayon pictures alone make me happy---but these were ALL good.

Mine:
13 Hearts
