Purple door

I mentioned a few days ago that the jasmine by our front door is blooming. It started peeping out the first day the light began to change and the sun was warm enough to forego jackets.

I'm concerned because I feel sure the cold weather has moved on yet, but apparently the Jasmine could not wait. We're hoping for the best.

When our niece was about 10 years old, she came over the afternoon Jilda painted the front door purple. She stood back for a long while considering the door before turning slowly toward us and saying with more authority than I would have imagined she could muster – "You know people around here are going to think you're weird."

Both Jilda and I howled with laughter for a moment, but Samantha's face remained stone still. Jilda then said to her, "I sure hope so kiddo."

  6. Since the Tyrian purple worn by Roman emperors, purple has been associated with royalty. It is still used by British and European Royalty on special occasions. As queen and king of your castle, you have every right to a purple door.
