Purple aubrietia
cascading down the wall
like a Roman Emperor’s cloak.

    Lovely! A perfect simile for the rich hue of aubrieta. Hard to believe this plant of royal colour is in the lowly cabbage family.

      Thanks Jules. I’ve looked at yours on gemsandstuff – love it. Left a comment too and was amazed it was accepted (I sometimes have trouble with Blogger/Blogspot though Blogspot is slightly more reliable).

    oh yes! I like that analogy – purple Emperor’s cloak
    my aubretia’s looking tired, perhaps I need to cut it back once the flowers have gone
