Purple at the HoBB . TV

“Purple, yes, but not that purple.
Purple-ish, sure, but not so purple.”


Beyond normal explanation

The day starts. It’s a further less usual day.

The HoBB is closed as there’s a virus about!

But it remains usual as a sharing day and a day for nibbling virtual snippets and offline fish and chips.

As covid 19 is ‘beyond normal explanation’, here is my artistic impression of its purpose in life ….. in ink and pencil with a royal tyrean purple overlay.

But before it, a blossom of peony, now pink, once red, to show that normality grows in the HoBB garden and lives seasonally strong.

Happy new normality.
