{crush} PURPLE & GREEN

My favorite color combo is purple and green.  I’ve loved all shades, well, almost all shades, since I was a child.  My bedroom was painted a lavender color when I was growing up.  I’m older and my room isn’t purple, but I enjoy the color in my home with my ever-growing collection of amethyst glass which is displayed in corner shelves in my dining room.

This flower belongs to the Oxalis plant.  We commoners just call it Shamrock.  Or three-leaf clovers.  Some people see them as weeds.  I have a dear friend who who is an awesome gardener, who taught me years ago that some things we consider weeds are actually native plants that are meant to be enjoyed.  Since then I’ve grown to love all the Oxalis and wild violets that pop up around my yard.  In fact, now I even dig up lone clumps and put them together in a grouping and they really give a beautiful display when in bloom!  As in all of life, it’s all a matter of perspective.
