Go here for processing note – How to make a dream come true

When the deep purple falls
Over sleepy garden walls
And the stars begin to twinkle in the sky
In the mist of a memory you wander back to me
Breathing my name with a sigh

In the still of the night once again I hold you tight
Though you’re gone
Your love lives on when moonlight beams
And as long as my heart will beat
Sweet lovers we’ll always meet
Here in my deep purple dreams

Deep Purple – Donny & Marie Osmond

    They are exquisite John, so is your photograph! I have never seen these flowers before, did you take them in a garden or in the wild? I think your capture is outstanding :-)
