Purple Rain....



There are Magical Moments in life!

Weep for those who have yet to discover that.... 


Experienced one recently in North Carolina on an extraordinary Spring day .... Purple Rain!



Wisteria is one of our most exotic Southern treasures. A native climber in the pea family, wisteria breaks forth at this time of year in extravagant displays of purple cascades. The flowers are actually small clusters of pods which are strung together much like a bunch of grapes.


Was out and about in those proverbial woods when a strong wind came up. Started hearing the sound of rain in the grass and began getting pelted by several large drops, which seemed unusual given the bright sunlight and almost cloudless sky...

... Prince! 


.... the Weep!


... Purple Rain!

MAGICAL MOMENTS...

Life can be very short which is why you need to grab as much of it as you can in the time you are given. Live for the day, don't dwell on the past, do your best and remember how great it is to be alive and enjoy the beauty that surrounds us.
