“A wise old owl lived in an oak;
The more he saw the less he spoke;
The less he spoke the more he heard...
Why can't we all be like that bird?”

PURPLE




Bud, wearing his purple shirt...hard at work, tearing out the old patio covering [the project is completed now...we finally have much needed light in our dining room! Yay!!!!]
Today is Bud's Birthday. I think I'll 'give him the day off of hard labor'. LOL


Also, a couple of our purple flowering bushes, in our yard:






Purple Duranta
aka Geisha Girl













Bush Clock Vine
aka...King's Mantel

  21. Dear Anni ~~Happy birthday for Bud
    and I am glad your dining room has more light now. Love the flowers (and anything purple.) I have a bush of the Geisha Girl and it's lovely. I didn't know it was a Duranta till now. I am much better now and did enjoy my visitors except they all came at once.They were all very helpful. Thanks for the Easter greeting. I love the words "peace" and "tranquility" and also the word "serenity" They
    just sound so nice.
    Take care Anni, Love, Merle.

  22. Purple is one of my favorite colors although I don't wear it or use it to decorate much -- did have a purple bathroom in the old house though -- great pictures and great to be back visiting friends.
    Things are better with Daddy, my friend, and my world in general. :)

  48. Just realized I hadn't seen your theme for this week. Now I see Bud was working two jobs (the honeydo list and the subject of your photo) so he definitely deserves some time off.
