The Color Purple

This spring, purple seems to be the color of choice. I saw these flowers more than once on my ride today. (Notice there are actually more purple flowers at the foot of the tall ones.) Thistles added purple, and purple iceplant. In my neighborhood, and to some degree out at Palos Verdes, it's jacaranda season, which means on some streets you ride under a canopy of purple that stretches from one side of the street to the other. On Palos Verdes Peninsula, whole hillsides were covered in purple daisies. Each purple adds a slightly different tone to the pallette, but the combined effect is breathtaking.
