Glimpses of San Francisco - Purple!

By
Real Estate Agent with Compass CA DRE# 01215160

As some of you know I love walking throughout the neighborhoods of San Francisco. When on foot, walking between property showings or previews, to appointments or on errands, I have the luxury of a few minutes of time to enjoy some of the sights along the way.

Today I am focusing on the color purple (and thinking of our colleagues Sally K. & David L. Hanson and their love of purple.)

We see soft purple skies at twilight over AT&T Park (go Giants!) matched by the soft purple of fragrant lavender gracing Lafayette Park.

Bold purple can be spotted on houses, apartment buildings and cars, too! Even the cabbages at the Heart of the City Farmer's Market gleam purple.

Just when ones eye needs a relief from the deep, bright purples, here's a lovely brick city street near the Sutro Forest, with the street trees showing the soft purple of their blossoms.

Hi Barbara Todaro - there's so much beauty around it helps to focus on one thing at a time.

Happy Saturday, Wayne Martin - this city is a delightful place to walk. Tomorrow we'll take a couple sections of the newly-routed cross-city trail (17.5 miles total), starting at an area we rarely visit, Candlestick Point (where the 49er's and Giants used to play ball.)

Like you, Joe Pryor I loved that SmartCar - a sassy color is just right for a sassy car!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel - Jacarandas are probably the most showy trees we have in California. I think we're a bit behind you---I haven't seen any blooming yet this year.

Lottie- Just had to stop back today because on my way to my new campground I smiled because I saw a house that was a lilac purple with a darker purple trim and it made me smile because it made me think of you and this post.

Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP - somehow I had missed that purple is a favorite color of yours. Now I know, and that's one of the beauties of Active Rain--really getting to know one another.

Hi George Souto - I saw lots more purple on yesterday's walk. Interesting, when we narrow our focus, we see things we might have overlooked before.

How cool is this?  Love the purples in this post - and you must know by now. I LOVE this series. San Fran is the perfect rainbow of colors too.

I like the little purple Smart Car.  I usually choose red cars for myself, but if given the opportunity of that one, I'd have to at least consider it.
