Purple in home and garden?

Why not?

Purple draws attention, and a smile.

If you are looking for a special accent color, whether in paint, fabric, or flowers, consider shades of purple. From lilac to eggplant, there’s a purple for just about everything.


A purple trellis is a happy accent in the Hershey Gardens Children’s Garden.  See more photos of these beautiful gardens here and here.

Found this purple mushroom in the yard a few years back.  It looks fake, but it’s the real thing.
