(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #151: Lummi Island Flower

Lummi-Island-FlowerI have a post bubbling under the surface just waiting to burst out into the light of day…the topic being the weekend I just spent on Lummi Island and the incredible meal I ate while there.  But travel and work schedules plus an allergy attack have become obstacles.  Ones that I hope to overcome this weekend!

In the meantime, please enjoy this absolutely gorgeous flower I spotted over the weekend.  I have an attraction to purple flowers, don’t know why, just do.  I love the black interwoven into the stamens (?) and the base of the flower.  Black is not a color I normally associate with flowers, but it certainly makes this one more dramatic in my eyes.

Happy Wednesday!
