Purple as a Sweet Shot

I LOVE the color purple!  In fact, I've loved it since high school....more than 50 years ago!  It was quite fortunate to teach for 26 years at a high school where the colors are purple and white.   For this week's Sweet Shot Tuesday, I played around with an image of purple tulips and a Flypaper texture called "Angelique Glace."  (If only the purple tulips were truly royal purple!)
