Purple Reign on a Manic Monday

In the last few days, the purple flowers of our rhododendrons bloomed. Like the purple lilacs that I featured here last week, they will survive for only a week or so before they wither and disappear. The large flower basket that hangs outside our front door is filled with royal purple petunias.

Today's tribute to purple is a nod to acknowledge last week's passing of musician Prince. He died at the all-too-young age of 57... the same age as me. The cause of his death has yet to be announced. 2016 is turning out to be a terrible year for the loss of my music icons.

Prince's CD soundtrack to his movie Purple Rain was a favourite of mine for years. I often belt out the title track when I'm in the sauna by myself because my singing would make doves cry.

I hope that somewhere out there the Funk Master is cruising in his Little Red Corvette and partying like it's forever 1999.
