Violet and purple are some of my most favorite colors and I love spotting them in nature, like these pretty violet wildflowers covered with the morning dew.

Or this purple aster with water drop remnants from the morning’s watering.

I still don’t know what these flowers are (they grow on a large bush) but I love their bold purple color.

In a few weeks, the wisteria trees will start blooming in San Diego. Love at all those shades of violet on each flower.

Violet can appear not only in flowers but in the sky too. On that day, the clouds and the sunlight created a pink and purple sunset worth photographing.
