I never want to let go of the purple. I don’t want May to leave so soon. I LOVE purple! When my whole yard is purple at the end of May, the temperatures cool and the mornings misty, I live in purple.
There is the Little Kims, a late lilac still blooming. The wisteria is draping purple across the arbors, to the top of a white pine and across the front of the house. The iris adds a dark dignified purple to the whole mix.
But it is the Dame’s Rocket that likes it in my garden the best and she spreads like a rambling weed all across the lawn and brings purple, all shades of purple, dark and light and in-between to every corner of the yard.
