three things purple, well 4

Blueberry barley pancakes this morning after flower market, admittedly, as inspired by Bon Appetit's February cover. (*Also in Bon Appetit this month is a new column by Molly from Orangette, my favorite food blog. Pretty good stuff.

Purple fringed ranunculus. Like Whoa, I love these so much I sort of hide them in the store so as not to sell them. Not great marketing I suppose...OK, you can have one.

Purple Star hyacinths from flower market this morning...unusual purple stem.

*Lastly, a few weeks ago, my mom scoffed at a purple sweater I picked out for her. "Don't you know that poem: When I am Old I Will Wear Purple?" I didn't but do now. I actually don't like it.

I adore flowers particularly white ones. The purple fringed ranunculus
is wonder you tried to hide it. I have been looking at the photos of your other posts...wonderful flower arrangements and photos.

I actually wore that sweater today...for the first time.
It's OK....but I usually NEVER wear purple.

Love love love these flowers! And the pancakes made me hungry...

Several things re: the poem...

-That poem always made me really bitter that I love purple and that it looks good on me.

-When I was in high school, the women's choir sang a piece based on the poem. It still gives me the heebie-jeebies thinking of all these 16-year-olds singing it.

-The Red Hat Society ladies wear purple clothes with their red hats. Again, bitter, because that's my favorite color combination. Argh! Sarah's mom, just make sure you don't wear a red hat with your awesome purple sweater... :-)

i really cringe at the red hat society - do you know how many t-shirts, mugs and other junk have been made to promote the idea that aging is not just acceptable, but fun?

whoa... no ranting, I promised myself.

thank you for the kind words Mo'a and Gorges - they are so encouraging!
