Purple passion

I'm over my purple phase where most of my clothes were purple. I consider purple a neutral color because it can really go with every other color. Especially green—purple and green is my favorite color combination.
Is it just my neighborhood where it seems that most of the flowers are purple?
Purple can be subtle as in these big piles of Baraboo quartzite boulders at Devil's Lake State Park.  Lichens add a touch of green. (It's nature's favorite partner for purple.)
Purple can shade toward blue or red. I'm willing to call this tree peony a reddish purple.
I still have my Sisterhood of Purple mug and I'm keeping my status as honorary member even though my wardrobe has a wider range of colors now.
