YELLOW OR PURPLE

CMMC April Colors Yellow or Purple

I just happen to have some lovely purple orchids — and a few other purples to go with them.

    • Thanks! Those peppers were so beautiful it seemed a pity to eat them. They taste like all the other sweet peppers. I think they are a cross between red and yellow peppers, but looking at them in the stand they were art. We ate them anyway because it would have been a terrible pity to waste them, lovely though they were.

      Purple is one of my favorite colors and might be my favorite color for flowers. It was easy to find these colors since so many flowers are purple and many are both yellow and purple in one flower – though I think Cee’s yellow and purple iris was the most gorgeous combination I’ve every seen.

      • My favourite colour is purple too! And I love purple flowers very much!

        I’ve had a very dark purple pepper – but like you experienced with the artful peppers, they taste pretty much like other sweet peppers. I like the idea of purple fruit & veg containing anthocyanins though, so I would eat them any day even if they taste like their other-coloured counterparts.

    • Thanks. It’s great to brighten days. It makes it worth the time to put together these posts. My son bought my another set of mini-orchids too — and I think that’s pretty much “it” for orchids. I am out of space.

    • I had trouble cutting them up, but they have a short lifespan. In the store, the display was absolutely beautiful. They taste like every other sweet pepper, but they really ARE too pretty to chop into pieces. Except for the “rotting” thing.
