Purple Love

This tree with the
purple flowers is near
my home, and every
time I pass by,
I admire it.
 When I was at the
store, this Taffy was
sitting right in the
center of the store, 
and I just had
to buy some. Guess
what flavor it is?
Have a good
rest of the week.



I grew up eating salt water taffy and have never in my life had or heard of Huckleberry. Sounds yummy.

Good evening Sheri,

Such a pretty post Sheri. I love the Crepe Myrtle tree, that happens to be my favorite color , I have a small pink one. Who doesn't love Saltwater Taffy in the summer , right? Huckleberry sounds so cute !

HUCKLEBERRY? Now I've never heard of this...but it sounds as if it is just delicious! Sheri my sweet one, how are you? I miss everyone so much, but I have so much to do; I was on a three day trip out of state, just got back on Tuesday and had to plunge into a writing assignment. I leave for California (L.A.) next Wednesday and will be there until the following Monday.


It's me said...

This reminds me of a quote I read a hile ago:

"I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don't notice it.
Alice Walker"

I love purple. I love Lavanda and I'm always happy when some of my Hortensias get that "purple feeling". I believe it is soothing and energizing at the same time.
Do you know jacarandás? The tree? There's a street close to my work that is lined with them, and when the flowers fall it seems like a purple carpet joins the fun... need to go there and check if it's in full form. If so, I'll take a picture and share with you.


So glad He Isn't pissed at you ahahahah

Alina said...

Lovely post! Penny is right, that purple tree is a Crepe Myrtle tree. I have a raspberry pink one in my front yard. They come in many colors. The taffy looks so good!


Susie Swanson said...

Sheri, My mother loved the color purple...anything that had a purple coloring would catch her eye. Daddy used to say she had 20 pairs of various shades of purple pants.LOL I loved the flowers, and I wonder how hucklberry taffy taste. I have not been able to visit your site for some yes, I like italian food. I can only imagine eating the real thing in Rome.xoxo,Susie
