The color purple

San Diego County is home to many types of plants and flowers and Spring is the best season to spot colorful blooms. By the time June comes, everything turns to yellow and brown so you need to enjoy the blooms while they last. Lilac blooms are my favorite for sure (more lilac blooms here).

This past Spring, as I was hiking in a regional park called San Diego Mission Trails park, I noticed a beautiful purple flower on the side of the path. I kneeled down to take the photo below of this lupine plant. I call it the color purple.

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.”
