Rural Mailbox Floral

My brother and I spotted this mailbox/shrub scene in Chambers County, Texas a week or so ago while out on a photo junket. It caught my attention because of its vibrant purple color. Even though we are blessed to live in a semi-tropical zone 9 here on the Texas Gulf Coast I wasn’t expecting to see this much color near mid-November. I also like the rustic mailbox which adds additional interest and helps to convey a sense of the scenes rural location.
