Eggplant Cowl Neck T

Is this eggplant? Plum? Wine? I’m not really sure how to describe the color of my shirt, but I do like it.

It’s super soft and has a nice, drapey, cowl neckline. It goes with so much, but today I wore it with a dark-rinse denim.

I cannot believe how my garden exploded! One day, it’s all bare earth; the next, I’m in a jungle. Unfortunately the weeds are also out of control. And since my dog hangs out here–and we have crow and rabbit visitors–I refuse to use herbicides. So I pull weeds out one at a time. It’s a good workout though. Doing squats in the garden is better than hanging out in a stuffy gym.

Do you garden at all? I once thought I was a brown thumb, but with the right mix of hearty plants, even I can help things grow! So far, bleeding hearts, columbines, hostas, and day lilies are coming back with a vengeance!

  2. Jean! Your plants are gorgeous! You have the right attitude about gardening. My HM {husband man/handsome man} plants tomatoes, squash, pumpkin and onions every year plus a few others in the mix. He has the green thumb, not me. And this summer I have to be very limited at how much time I am out in the sun {chemo hastens the faster burn factor}. Thanks for being at Fashion item Friday {*FiF*} and it has been great getting to know you more this week. Yay! ♥, Renae

    • oh and yes, ‘eggplant’ is the perfect name for that color.

    • Thank you! I enjoy the garden and I don’t want to create something so high maintenance that I dread it. Growing food is a great idea! I grew tomatoes and peppers last year (and I’m doing it again this year). They’re easy to grow but I didn’t count them in my list because they’re annuals that need to be replanted every year. The lilies behind me came back all on their own! Still, planning a tomato plant is not a lot of work compared to the payoff! I had tomatoes every day for weeks last year!

      I enjoyed linking up and discovering new blogs. Great to know more about you too!

  3. WOW! What a great color.
