Day 109 in the Crayola Challenge! An English Cottage is the Perfect Place for Purple or is it Violet?

First there was Purple. Then in 1914 Crayola made Purple, Violet. Violet has transitioned through Violet 1, 2 and 3. There are more names for Violet in all the collections than I can shake a stick at!  Violet has been called Bunch of Grapes Purple in the “So Big” set, Jellyfish Purple and Venus Violet, in the “Discovery ” series, Psychedelic Purple, in the “Retro Colors” set,  Ravenous Purple, in the “Colors of Baltimore” series, Pike’s Peak Purple, the color for Colorado in the “State Crayon Collection” and Love & Purple in the 110th Anniverary set. Crayola loved their purples!

This post is just one of many in the Color Your World: 120 Days of Crayola Challenge

Check out some of the other 150+ challenge participants, it’s amazing what we have done with the Crayola colors!

    Lovely photos, can you remember where you took it? There’s such a lot of purple colours, I’ll see if I can find something to match this one.

      Georgie, this is one of the pictures I took doing a whirlwind trip through NGS gardens. It was at one of the gardens, either at West Hoathly or Warninglid or at one we stopped at between the two!
