"When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begins to flicker in the sky
Through the mist of a memory
You wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh."
(From the song Deep Purple, by Parish Mitchell)
This deep purple Columbine (Aquilegia)
planted itself in my front garden several years ago.
It has grown huge and when in full bloom,
blocks the pathway to our front door.
Although it is inconvenient and out of place,
I wouldn't even think of moving it.
Bloom where you're planted,
Or in this case,
Where you plant yourself :)
