I love the purple flowers!

I have indigo, too, a new plant for me this year. Planted last summer, it is in full bloom now. My iris are done, more's the pity, and so are the chives (which will return for a second growth as I cut them down, or "gave them a haircut" as my herb farm co-worker used to say).

I have a beautiful stand of lavender, so gorgeous and aromatic,several varieties: English, French, Hidcote, Jean Davis. And one in the back garden that I share with my neighbor. She has purple clematis.

I. Love. Purple.
