I seem to be going through a purple phase. Perhaps it’s because autumn appears to have arrived, and I’ve been reaching in the wardrobe for darker colours again. Perhaps it’s because the homes and gardens type magazines I read are full of purple. The food magazines are positively dripping with damsons, plums, blackberries and figs.
Anyway, the colour seems to have seeped into my subconscious, and yesterday morning I found myself treating myself to a little bouquet of agapanthus and lilies. I also found myself later on in the garden centre impulsively buying an agapanthus which is now sitting in a cobalt blue pot right outside my window. I can’t stop looking at it, willing it to produce some more of those stunning little jewel-like flowers.
So it was only natural that I drew one of the stems this morning.
