Color Mondays: Episode Purple

I am joining along with Jenny  - She says:

"It's a new, fun linky party where you get to play with color. Mondays can be so blah, so boring, so overwhelming, that I thought it might be fun to brighten them up with color".

Try it.  It's addictive.

Find a picture, save it to your computer, upload it to the Palette Builder, play with the colors. Then save your picture, blog it and share it.

Thinking in purple today, one of my favorite colors actually, I dug out this quilt I made a few years back.  I used lots of Amy Butler and Kaffee Fassett fabrics.  It's super easy and really showcases large prints.  It's called Simply Delightful by Quilting Belle. 
We're having a bumper crop of eggplant here.  Basil and Hot Peppers too! In the spring, I saw this incredible planter at Whole Foods.  I asked if there was a way that I could get one.  They had no clue.  But it was definitely not for sale.  Someone from their home office just came, built it and left.   
(this is the one I saw at Whole Foods)
I knew I needed one.  Our backyard is pretty shaded.  Our deck gets the most sunshine.  Deer are constantly munching on my plants in the ground and my back hurts when I garden too long.  One of my friend's contractor son made this planter on wheels for me. 

Here's mine from start to finish. 

Anybody want to share what you are growing in your garden this year?

  1. Okay, LOVE your planter on wheels. Such a great idea! Now I need one - totally pinning this picture for later.

    And your palettes - STUNNING! Sorry for shouting, but that ocean one? So rich and beautiful. And the eggplants. Gorgeous.

    Thanks for playing. It is so addictive, isn't it?
