Reluctant purple

What does purple look like to you? I’ve been somewhat demented in the last couple of weeks, even though Jude supplied me with a palette to help matters. I thought purple was purple, not that plummy, damson colour, and it seems I have a distinct fondness for violet, at the bluer end of the spectrum. Oh, what the heck? It’s only a challenge, isn’t it? And the point is to take photos you like and that are interesting. Don’t you think?

(You do need to open the gallery to see the photos in full. Block editor loves to chop them off!)

When is purple, pink? Or violet? Don’t ask me! I’m just an innocent bystander. Happy Monday everyone!

    1. I only gave it one shot but I suspect violet will be easier πŸ€£πŸ’•. I tried to v
      Jo your site yesterday and WP told me it was closed for maintenance? I’ll try again later today πŸ’•

      1. I’ve yet to post my purples! I’m still busy with my site so I’ve closed it off for a little longer. Apologies for that! It’s all a steep learning curve for me! Hope to be up and running by end of May at the latest!

  1. Beautiful purple! I do love the color in nature and all else. I was able to see my 3-year old grandson this past week and while reading a story he informed me that purple was his favorite color. I was charmed by that. He has good taste! πŸ™‚

  2. Somewhat demented? Only last week? Lovely pics Jo, never really sure what purple is. I have no clue what violet, indigo, pink or purple are really. Far too complicated for me.

    1. It’s a hot one, Cee! Just back from t’ai chi and a prolonged lunch with friends who are traveling back to the UK. Thank you very much πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸ’•

  3. I missed Jude’s palette post so I’m glad I saw it here. I had decided to keep out of the months with purple and violet, it seemed safest! But then I saw on Jude’s post that any version of purple or violet will do, so I’m back in.
    I like your purple octopus. πŸ™‚

  4. All these blue and purple tints, Jo. Your posts always exude peace and fun at the same time:) Jesh

  5. I love purple! It’s the colour of my graduating class! A couple of my classmates didn’t like it though. They said it doesn’t go with anything. I disagree!

  6. What a wonderful collection of beautiful photos, Jo. One way to distinguish the difference between the two colours, although I can never do it, is to remember that purple is closer to red and violet is closer to blue. Thanks for sharing and have a nice day. Aiva πŸ™‚ xxx

    1. Jude explains that, Aiva. There are a lot of colours that I don’t think of as purple, but I still like them πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Thanks for your lovely company.

  7. Purple is such a hard colour to define really as there are so many variants.Strangely it’s not a colour which ever features in my life – I don’t dislike it, it’s just that I’ve never really had many things of that colour. I love your octopus and the tiles, and the house looks lovely even though it’s not really purple πŸ™‚

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever owned anything purple, Eunice. I do have a wine coloured winter coat, but I’ve never regarded it as purple πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  8. I think of you every time I post a purple photo because of your reluctance and your narrow definition of purple. πŸ™‚ Hee, hee. It does get a bit confusing when purples seem to be melting into either pink or blue, but as you said, Jude’s not harsh about it. I know my husband and I see colors differently sometimes. πŸ™‚ Happy Monday, Jo, and I enjoyed your choices greatly.
