Is the color purple harmonious with nature? That depends on who you ask: one Missouri homeowners association says a purple play set in the backyard strikes a discordant note with its environment, but the family who owns it says it fits in perfectly with fall foliage. The family says the HOA has threatened to sue them over the swing set and slide.
Though the owners of the purple swing set acknowledge that there are rules regarding the color of play equipment, the family says they’re not violating those guidelines.
“There’s nothing in the rules about color,” the mom told WDAF-TV. “What it says is it has to be harmonious with the community and with nature and there is nothing that dictates the color of the swing set.”
