Deep Purple

I’m still getting to know the plants and flowers in our “garden” and am on a rush schedule now that it is October.  I’m anticipating that the flowers will soon be gone and that freezing weather will be upon us at some point; this will be the first time I’ve lived with snow.  Yesterday I used my macro lens to photograph this beauty with its deep purple petals. I textured it with Kim Klassen’s cool grunge texture, an oldie but a goodie, and am linking up with today’s Texture Tuesday.
