Purple pew

The one thing in the heart of Summer that an English scene can guarantee is that somewhere in the line of sight there will be shades of purple. There is nothing quite like passionate purple to lift the spirits even when the sky up above is rolling with battleship steel grey clouds that hang low in the distance. The proud purples reach out and spike the landscape with their rich hope and glory. May be this is why clothes that were dyed the colour purple were desired by the wealthy many years ago.

I'm not good when it comes to names of flowers. The purple pews are beautiful. I see some flowers similar to those around here. Not sure if they're the same though.

Happy weekend Polly. Take care.

Thank you both ... I think some of the flowers grow in many places in the world. Whilst at a gardening centre recently I saw that they had a giant vetch that was purple and white ... I was very tempted ...
