weekly picture challenge: purple and arch







(clock tower and Willard Straight Hall, Cornell University looking TRES Ivy League, plus my purple house, purple bird houses that match, beagle and flowers)
Tink hosts the weekly word picture challenge today, themes: purple and arch. I have enjoyed this challenge this week, living in a purple house when there are purple flowers all over and teaching on a campus covered in arches. Cornell has a million pretty arches, but this little arch at the base of the clock tower is the entrance and I walk by it all the time to get into the ceramic studio at Willard Straight Hall--Cornell's mascot is a bear and there are two cute bears carved above this arch.
And yes, although the colors are bad in my photo, we live in a purple house....

"we live in a purple house" ~ sounds like the beginning of a poem somewhere. Hehe.

Love the pictures!

Great shots Gary! I love the arches.

I could've used some of your over abundance of purple today. I couldn't come up with anything.
And regardless of the picture colors, I love your purple house. I think living there would just make one happy.
Great pictures!

Your house looks blue against those lilacs.

It's like a purple oasis! If I lived next to you, I'd be tempted to make my theme blue. Then we'd work on the neighbors to continue the rainbow. ;)

Any bluebirds in those houses, Gary???

Purple always goes great with deep, rich greens. Well done.
