Purple and Green

Seems all I can think of these days is silver and gold purple and green.

Purple and Green
Purple and Green
Everyone wishes for Purple and Green
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on Earth

Purple and Green means so much more when I see
Purple and Green flow'rs and berries throughout my fall garden.

What's a fall garden without purple and green? It isn't really a fall garden is it? Just think of all we'd miss if we didn't have purple and green in our fall gardens?

At least most of those are purple and not magenta :) My fall garden is a yellow garden; asters, helianthus, etc.

Where would we be indeed, without purple and green. We have so many asters that fall into that bracket and they look wonderful with green and yellow.

So true, my recent post on favorite plant of the week was on a purple and green combination, Eryngium planum 'Jade Frost'.

One day, when I learn what I am doing ...I am going to name my gardens..the Gardens of October..because it's the prettiest time of the year here...I love the beauty berry....

Purple and green it is! We hear so much about the "autumn" colors and purple isn't one of them.....should be.

I was also thinking that purple should be added to the autumnal colors. I have asters, and Grandpa Ott morning glories that are indeed glorious.
