Travel Theme: Purple

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAThis week, Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack has nominated the colour Purple as the travel theme for the week. As purple is one of my favourite colours, I expected to find a plethora of exotic purple images amongst the sari draped women of India or in the temples of Myanmar. Other than a few purple clad young fairies and tu-tued ballerinas who come to visit, I found very little in my digital files.

So, with my favourite travel accessory, the purple Olympus Pen camera, I ventured outdoors into the cold morning fog of Melbourne winter. The only colour in my garden at present is Purple. An Australian native plant, hardenbergia  flowers in winter for around a month and can often be found growing wild in the bush, a startling thunderbolt of colour amongst the grey green of the eucalyptus.

  1. The blog world works in wonderful ways… I caught a glimpse of your hardenbergia pic during my very early Sunday morning blog browsing so my eyes were open to the real thing hanging over a fence on the way home from a wander to the shops; a sprig came home with me to brighten up a very dreary Sydney Sunday 🙂
