Beautiful banner Dirt.

Thank you all!
This is the year that Daphne succeeded in consuming its companions. On the one hand I'm grateful to have such a happy daphne after 5 years Smiling but the poor ameria and asperula were overwhelmed and shaded. I tried to relocate them and they died. Sad

Interesting observation Arlene. On my supposedly 'calibrated' monitor they look fairly pink, but I just pulled it up on a different one and they do look a little more lavender Shrug!
What do the rest of you see?

Thank you all very much!

I think I may have figured it out--if it's not purple, to me, it's pink Hilarious!
and if it is supposed to be light blue but it's kinda purple and not really blue then I call it lavender...

I took a look at this

have no idea how 'correct' it is or not, but must confess that there are a lot of colors I name wrong *Blush*

I'd call the color of your banner blooms orchid.

The color names were interesting and the last category made me laugh.

Beautiful banner Dirt! I love the texture of the two together. Well done!! I tip my hat to you.

I would have said pink, but after looking at the color chart I need to update to lavender, with magenta in the daphne.

The last group is funny! Hilarious!

I knew I had a funny color reference. Apparently there are LOTS of shades of pink, according to JCrew:

Hilarious! Luigi!
who knew?
not me--

I'll go with orchid Thumbs up

There are a lot of pinks and I have a hard time coordinating them. Every once in a while I luck out and they look good together, but I often get some horrendous clashes
