Purple

So as I was hanging a batch of BFL Sock in Salvia on the line (destined for Kathy’s Knits in Edinburgh) , it struck me how much purple (or nearly purple) there is around the garden… So I nabbed a skein off the line and grabbed my iPad, and had a wild few minutes putting this purple skein everywhere. Here’s how it went.

It’s a good match for this heavily perfumed buddleja (ironically not the shade of our Buddleja colourway)…
Or how about alongside this sage..  
  I like it with the vibrancy of this small verbena..

  
And with the softness of this (also heavily scented) lavender..

 

It’s a great match alongside this (French?) lavender too (I had to fight the bees for it)..
   
And again alongside a more vibrant shade (this is the buddleja that our colourway is named for)..(also heavily scented)..

 

Here it is with a huge (in a pot) mound of petunia, which has gone more pinkish since I’ve had it..
  

I like it with these sweet peas… 
 

I reeeeeally like it with this lobelia and petunia..
   
And more sweet peas..

 

And even more sweet peas – the dark ones remind me of our Black Magic Rose colourway actually..
  

Here it is with a fuchsia (but not the one the colourway is named for!).. 
 

And here with ponytail grass – the light gold is what our Whispering Grass colourway is named for and I love it with purple..
   
And finally with a now ratty looking teasel..

 

Maybe I’ll do a blog post about other specific colours sometime..
