The Colour Purple

 OK, you can all stop looking for paradise, I've just found it across the road from me and up and down the whole street, actually all over town even.

Tibouchina alstonville in all its purpleness is flowering like crazy this year after the mad Summer rains we, um, enjoyed here.
 To save me a whole lot of typing here is a link that will tell you more about the tree itself.





Cheers and happy purpleness to you,

Stewart.
