True Colors Thursday - Violet

Yeaaaaaaaaa, one of our favorite days has rolled around once again! We just love playing! If you are so inclined, let Blue know!
Today's color is violet!

These are Johnny Jump-ups that are still blooming in our garden! Mom just loves that face!
We were lucky enough to snag the picture of the violet Asters before they were history for this year!Our violet ice cream spoon!
Mom made this scarf a few years back! It has violet yarn in it!
My red hatter collar has violet in it too!
No, Mitch, this is my bed! Go sleep on the other one!
Next week's color is lapis lazuli, which is a bright blue!

So until next time...................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Great colour post as always. Flowers are gorgeous! Loved the scarf and the model and very pretty collar.
You guys don't seem to have found a colour you struggle with yet!
You are just too good at this game - where on earth do you get violet ice cream?
love and kisses

Your beards are stunning I must say.

Maggie - that scarf looks great on you! Think it should be a permanent part of your wardrobe! How can those little flowers still be blooming? We've had a few good frosts here, so all the color is gone. Now it's all brown & grey till spring!!
