Weekly Photo Challenge: Purple

27 Jul

Can you guess what this is? No cheating 🙂

And this….

OK, you give up? Here it is….

On my way home from work, I walked past a little farmer’s market and here are two of the purple veggies I found – the other veggies did not qualify for the challenge, but the purple cabbage and purple beans did. 

Check out the other ‘Purple’ entries here.  A lot of folks seem to have purple as their favorite color – and I am hoping to see the picture of a purple kitchen wall!

      I love the cabbage too – great for stirfry and salad. Purple beans are rare, and I don’t see it often.

    Love the cabbage – it’s a wonderful purple, isn’t it? Purple beans did well where my parents lived, and were my Dad’s favourite – so good to see them again cause you don’t see them much in the shops in Australia either:)

      Yes, it is a wonderful purple, and look at God’s beautiful creation – how beautiful it looks. True, the purple beans are rare, and I just grabbed it when I saw it. Thank you for visiting.

    I tried very hard to identify your purple, but then gave up… wonderful and tricky purple
    I thought it was medical creepy thing, like brain or something *whaaat.. :mrgreen:

    • Shaanthz

      July 28, 2012 at 10:52 pm

      I love your comment “medical creepy thing” 🙂 You thought it was a brain with a contrast dye I guess. You are funny. Thanks for trying to identify it. This has been the best comment so far on my blog – I love it!
