I've been photographing a lot of "purple" flowers this week but decided none were purple enough for the theme. I went to my archives and found some deep purple flowers.
The shot above is of my black beauty hollyhocks which were lost in a drought. In spite of their name I think they are a rich purple. So many of my flowers which I think of as purple are actually more of a violet or blue shade. Even purple cone flower are more of a pinkish shade.
My purple clematis above was another casualty of the 2007-2008 drought. The purple morning glory below hasn't started blooming yet this year but I will have plenty of them later in the summer.
Photohunters post their links at the home of the hunt beginning Saturday mornings.
