The Colour Purple!

Some mornings I'm inspired by the sunrise!

Most mornings I marvel at 'my mountain'; it's majesty, it's perfection; sometime's still sleepy, under a soft blanked of cloud.

This morning I noticed something I hadn't noticed before!

I drove to Donegal, as I often do. Passed throught the 'Barnes-Mor' Gap, over the mountain, as I do at least once a week.

I always take in the scenery, long to stop the car and just spend the day wandering over the mountain.

But this morning I noticed the heather! The mountain was covered in this beautiful heather coloured purple. Has it always been there and I just haven't noticed? Or is it just the time of yaar?

Anyway this morning I enjoyed my drive to work. It was a drive to one of the offices at the extremity of my region which takes me about an hour and a half. But this morning The Colour Purple brightened up my day!

Sometimes, every now and then, if you open your eyes, open your senses, nature can serve up a feast.

I'd love to see that myself. You reminded me that I should take the time to stop and smell the flowers.

When I was in the English countryside I saw the fields of canola flowers. Bright yellow was spread all along the hillsides. It was gorgeous. I can only imagine how beautiful it would be with
fields of lavender.
