Weekly Header Challenge - Purple

It's time for the Weekly Header Challenge!

"Headbanger" Participants

I'm joining in the group above for this weekly challenge.
Feel free to click on the other participants' blogs
to see what they've come up with!

Theme ~ Purple

I didn't think I'd use this picture for my header--it's not all about purple!  But since I just took it, and since purple is a dominant feature in the rainbow (the I-ndigo and V-iolet of the ROYGBIV colors), I figured I'd feature it.  It's a reminder of God's promise to never flood the earth again.  It was especially significant this past Sunday, since these were the very storms that brought tornadoes and devastation to our nearby Illinois towns.  It was a triple rainbow for not-quite-enough-time for me to get a picture, but a double rainbow is pretty special, and I've never captured any rainbow from end to end.

Now, lest I persist with piles of paragraphs and punctuation, I present to you, dear people, my purple pictures!

Chives in bloom.

Honeybee on purple variegated beard tongue.

Jacob graduating from JJC.

Purple clematis.

Wildflower at a local park, hiding deep in the grass.

Crocus at a friend's home.

Scilla in my spring garden (it's more blue than purple).

Convocation at Western Illinois University.

Purple onion growing in my garden.

Purple fireworks (looks kinda blue, huh?).

Grape preserves canned last September--yum!

Thanks for perusing my plentiful pictures!  Perchance you'll pass this way again soon!

  1. Perfect pictures of the honeybee and the grape preserves! The alliteration was fun, too!

  2. Beautiful - that's a lot of purple! Getting the rainbow centered, with a full arc is also amazing. The bride and her sisters in my header are a creative bunch.

  3. It would be great to go into outer space and capture the complete Rainbow circle.
    Neat Purples here Christine.

  4. A plentitude of purpleness! Glad you are safe from the storm.

  5. Christine: I love the double rainbow I can see, can't even imagine seeing a triple. Love your photos in your blog post.
