Predominately Purple for Brooklyn

October 27th, 2011

I was out working in the garden earlier this week and noticed that most of the things blooming in my garden happen to be purple. I’m not quite sure how or why this happened, but it’s kind of funny. Most people have lots of marigolds and mums blooming this time of year because I don’t really have any in the garden.










I’m glad all these purple flowers are blooming because purple is the color for Rett Syndrome Awareness and October is it’s month. I didn’t know what this disease was until my friend Kelly’s daughter Brooklyn was diagnosed. All month long I’ve been wearing my purple gloves and thinking about Brooklyn when I see all these lovely purple blooms in my garden!
