Purple in a Field

In Alice Walker's The Color Purple, she has Celie say a line that paraphrases to "I think God is upset when we pass by the color purple and don't notice it."  Obviously, it is said a little different from that but I'll forego the strong language.

However, I take that line to heart, and I don't like to walk by purple flowers (which are always better than fake purple anything) like lilacs or these wildflowers and not notice them.  So I share.

I also like the color of eggplant, the color of coral, and the color of babies' eyes.
