Gentle Reader - I assure you that I did not orchestrate this photo.
I was sitting here reading through my bloglines, waiting for the Chicken Chow Mein to finish cooking and thinking I hadn't taken any purple pictures for Project Spectrum this month. Honestly, it's a little difficult for me to get excited about purple. It isn't a colour that looks good on me - it's more my mother's thing with her tanned skin, green eyes and blonde hair (yeah, I don't take after my mother too much - Willow has more of her colouring). Right now there aren't many purple flowers in the garden, either. I did drive by someone's yard the other day and they had the most gorgeous royal purple hydrangeas... but I don't know how much they would appreciate a stranger sneaking pics of their yard.
Anywho... so here I was moaning about my lack of purple for Project Spectrum when just who should come barreling through the living room dressed up as I'm not sure what - it looks remotely like some Aztec ball game - so I grabbed the camera before she had a chance to squint.
