For the Yahoo Photogroup's "Purple" theme :o)

Simply trying to come up with a creative way to do a "purple" theme. It ocurred to me that the most common entries might be flowers so I tried to make an unusual flower arrangement. By the way the photographer was only slightly harmed during the photo session :o)
