The colour purple

The colour purple

I just had to walk outside my front door to get this shot of some crocus blooms in
the garden. I am a somewhat reluctant gardener. I like visiting stately gardens,
I admire other people's gardens, and I will happily pour over gardening books
but when it comes to the hard work of digging and weeding....well that's another
story. But perhaps Pbase will spur me to be a better gardener as the idea of having
a ready supply of subjects waiting to be photographed it quite an incentive.

Very beautiful shot. I agree about the gardening. All that hard work leads to aching joints, but it is worth it in the end. V

A wonderful spring shot. I love these flowers and we won't get them for another month, at least.

Not just purple; a great *balance* of nicely saturated colours.

Mmmmm - Spring! :o)

You've captured the soft Spring light so well here - the petals look so delicate, and the colours are just perfect! +1 for the 'useless gardener' head-count :o))

Mairead, you and I could be great friends. I feel the same way you do about gardening!!! This image is spectacular! The backlighting is magnificent!!!! BV!!!!!

Fantastic colours and light. I'm useless at gardening too :-)

Beautiful colors and lighting in this lovely image. "V"
It seems that you and I have very similar views when it comes to gardening. :)

there's something to be said for growing your own subjects..at least crocuses are hardy and need little maintenance...marvellous mauves set off by that ringing orange...V
