Purple and Pink for Thursday.

Purple blooms and pink blooms in the backyard iris bed.

TITAN'S GLORY is so purple.

FOR LOVERS ONLY is so pink.

Here they are together.

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS again.

And a pink one, OPAKI POPPY in a small front yard bed.

Pursuit of Happiness is quite showy. Your photo gives a lot of info about how it shows up in the garden, which is very important to me. It's hard to tell, sometimes, how a flower looks in the garden when all you see is a "head-shot."

Renee, PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS is really, really pretty. I posted a better picture afew days ago on the first bloom but it was one of those closeups that just showed the one flower.
