I’m sharing these purple and violet flowers for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge in the hope they will be uplifting.

If you know what the purple spikes are, please let me know and I’ll update the caption. At a push I’d guess nepeta but if so, it’s an unusually fine flower.

  1. They are indeed uplifting, and so needed! I am partial to the blue glass and red hollyhocks in the top photo, but all of them are mood lifters. And who can beat those sweet violets for lightening the heart? Thank you!

    1. There are lots of good salvias these days. We tried out ‘Caradonna’ this year, hoping for something spectacular, but it sulked on my Mum’s clay. I should have known better.

  2. Gorgeous! I had a lacecap hydrangea just like the one in your photo in our previous garden in Scotland – I miss it!
