Searching for Roy G Biv 4: Violet Update #5

It's the third Thursday of the month...time for some Roy G Biv! This month's color is VIOLET.
Since I'm up at Cape Cod, I thought I'd share a bit of the local color.

We stay in Wellfleet, a town known for it's art galleries, great food and beautiful little gardens.

Many gardens in Wellfleet mix sculpture with flowers.

A fun hummingbird garden detail.
Lavender lace detail from a local dress shop.

A trip to Provincetown today adds a little bit of quirkiness to the mix!

Yes, I know it's yellow but I couldn't help myself! Besides there are some almost violet flowers in the background!

And finally...this amazing photo...wish I could say that I took it, but my friend, Robbin S. is the one with the great eye and timing to catch these two crabs mating!

Now it's your turn. Post up to five VIOLET photos on your blog or Facebook page and leave a comment here or on Jennifer Coyne Qudeen's blog. You will have through Saturday to post and comment. I'll continue to update as new entries come in. Have fun!

Jennifer has some Philadelphia VIOLETS.

Fiona at Paper Ponderings reflects on how books change how we look at the world...and offers some VIOLET in a piece by Charles Rennie MacKintosh.

Elizabeth and Susan at PGFiber2Art have a wonderful selection of VIOLET! Love the fabrics and that sunset!

Roxanne Lasky at Ideas in Cloth finds VIOLET to be a very "social" color.

Fran at At the End of the Day has adventurous VIOLETS.

Mary Ann at Blue Sky Dreaming has some subtle VIOLETS.

Margaret at Charleton Stitcher has some marvelous French VIOLETS and shares parts of her "twinning" adventure.

Maya at Take Diversion has some magical VIOLET!

Linda Stokes has some inspiring VIOLETS!

Since VIOLET is the end of the "official" rainbow...we decided to continue through the rest of the year. Hope you'll join us!

    1. Yes...the Cape is definitely my "spirit home" Many summers here and lots of great memories. Today would have been my Dad's 85th birthday and we plan to spread some of his ashes on the street where we rented all through our childhood.

  6. Hi Julie. I love your holiday violets, especially those crabs and that shop painted like icecream. I have posted holiday photos with hints of violet from a very recent trip to France. In fact, I returned on Thursday only, the reason for my late posting once again. I hope I'm just about in time!

  7. I have some of those flowers planted in my garden can't wait for them to bloom.
    I know I'm terribly late this month but I have a bit of violet on Take Diversion.

  8. Sounds like a lovely place to holiday & some nice photos.
    I've posted some too but no need to add if too late.

  9. wonderful violet collection, Julie! Sorry I missed this one...
