Pretty Purple Periwinkles

Periwinkle Pair, originally uploaded by The Sage’s Cupboard.

Isn’t it amazing how nature seems to pair up contrasting colors perfectly? Some people, when viewing one of these lovely periwinkle flowers on a pure white background, might say they were blue. The faintness of the color does allow for a little doubt. But when seen in their natural environment, the green leaves make sure that the purple stands out.

Do you ever argue with friends about the color of an object?  What color do you see in this photo?
