May is purple in So cal.
First we have the Jacarandas.
And the Lavender.
Not to be outdone by the Lavender, in my yard the Statice is looking particularly lovely. A half dozen other vines and blooms I cannot name or forgot the names of are getting into the spirit, giving up their purple blooms as well. Even the normally pink Bougainvillea seems to have tilted towards a purplish magenta.
It’s like I’m looking at the world through a purple filter. Or perhaps I have just stared too long at the sun and then opened my eyes to the big blue sky. You know that purple effect?
The lavender smells great too.
