Purple Heart

Little Things: A Purple Plant

This purple leafed plant on my mom’s porch painted in August.

I loved to visit my mom’s porch this summer with my boy.

He plays in the little pool of water my mom has set up warming in the sun. He drops rocks into it, plop, plop, plop, savoring the sound and the little splashes.

Meanwhile I usually get to rest a bit, chatting with my mom while she makes sure there are always snacks and tea, offered up many times despite any no-thank-yous (though I of course accept at once).

This time, I also painted. I love purple leafed plants, and this was no exception! I picked up all sorts of hues in this “Purple Heart” (I think) plant, but the overall impression was of purple, it was truly a lovely little plant.
