Shades of Autumn {Purple}

I just got around to posting last week's Red challenge on Monday so I feel like I'm lumping them together in a way.  At least I didn't have to go shopping to find this week's color!

I planted these zinnias last year and wasn't sure they would come back this year.  They did, but in random places and they didn't bloom until late in the Summer.  Some are still blooming now!  Like the one above. 

Every Fall these sedum break out in these cute purple flowers.  It's like they have their Spring and Fall confused!

  1. I really love both of these shots! Such pretty flowers. :) You know, I planted zinnia's this spring and they bloomed once then totally went downhill. I was so disappointed. I've decided to pull them out and plant something else next spring. Any suggestions?
    Thanks for joining us in the Shades of Autumn Photo Challenge. Next week's theme will be brown. See you then! Have a great weekend.

  2. Lovely captures for purple week. Really love the color in that first one. Great work. I'm off to pin it! :)

  3. Lovely purple flowers! I was surprised to be able to find so much purple around my area. I thought it would be more difficult than it was.
