A colourful note:  this pale blue-lilac shade, known as periwinkle, is named after the flowers of the lesser periwinkle or myrtle herb.

The first recorded use of periwinkle as a colour name in English was in 1895.  It appeared as a Crayola crayon in 1958 and is still in existence.  It also appeared in a glittery version for a very short period, 1993-94.

  1. Great reflection! Special in periwinkle, which is a pleasant memory for me, since I wore a periwinkle dress on my middle daughter’s wedding. Have a lovely weekend, Debbie!.
