While I was reviewing images to put up for my Week 16 52-Week Project, I was reminded of the Purple theme for this CS; unfortunately the couple of purple flower images I had shot for that project were taken earlier in the week so not eligible for this CS, so that prompted me to get busy and find something else purple to shoot!

The perennials out front are starting to bloom. I know this one as "Meadow Sage", but I think that it is Salvia sylvestris - here's hoping that Jim (and Mrs. T) can confirm.

This is a wild dwarf iris about 4 inches tall. There are several blooming along the forest trail where I take my daily walk.

And this is a birds-foot violet, named for the shape of the leaves.

Couldn't get out today, so broke down and walked the neighborhood looking for purple. Found this large bush in a neighbor's front yard...
