Kermit the Frog sings about one of my favorite colors, green, but oh….PURPLE! I adore shades of purples, I love amethysts, I need these different tones of violet, and I will not ever again own a pair of hip hugger purple bell bottoms. (Some things are not necessary in this day and age!) When I came home last November, I had no idea I’d be in AK thru February. I’d have brought a lot more purple with me. I’m lucky I have a few of my favorite earrings. Not all of them, but some. I usually try to wear something purple every day in February. I’m not wearing quite as much of the color this year (other than my few earrings), but I am in a purple mindset.
In Oregon, my crocuses are stirring under the ground, thinking about opening their stunning petals to the warmth of the sun. I hope to be back to enjoy watching the bumble bees visit the royal chambers, then clumsily fly away covered in pollen. Purple is a blessing which feeds the soul. Amethysts are a healing stone and it is thought that if you surround yourself with the color purple, you will have peace of mind. Maybe I do need those bell bottoms and the sweet variegated purple poncho mom knitted me when I was 8~
