Sunday Stills Photo Challenge: Violet

Thank you to Cee Neuner for alerting me to this challenge! I’m afraid I’m going to use some of the same subjects for this particular challenge that comes to us by Terri Webster Schrandt of Second Wind Leisure Perspectives.

This iris has two shades of a violet nature.
Our wisteria is just starting to bloom. When it become full-fledged, it is a stunning sight to behold.
