Purple Vision

Is there a colour more vibrant and uplifting in springtime than this glowing, almost incandescent purple?

This is the only purple crocus blooming in the garden behind the little blue house in the village this year, although there are a number of striped specimens in flower. I planted at least a hundred of these glorious creatures last autumn, but my fellow gardeners (the squirrels) have replanted them all over the village, and only this single vivid solid purple specimen remains in the garden under the big ash tree.

The neighbours who were gifted with crocus bulbs by my furry little friends are surprised and delighted too.

I adore purple! It is such a wonderous colour for spring. The deer just ate every single one of my ruby tulips!
