Tag with lilac!

The last few days I was in a lilac mood, don't know why but I made some creations with shades of yellow and lilac, maybe it's that little bit sping that was in the air.
Well, that's over now, sun is gone and it's snowing outside, still winter.

Lilac is a color that is a pale shade of violet. It might also be described as light purple. The actual color of the lilac flower or Syringa is a much deeper color.
I found a lot of names for the shades of Lilac, very interesting for tagging!
Here we go: Amethyst, Eggplant, Fuchsia, Han purple, Heliotrope, Indigo, Lavender (floral), Lavender, Lilac Mauve, Periwinkle, Persian indigo, Purple, Thistle, Violet, Wisteria

I also like this colour combination, although I've never used it myself before ...
And all those names ... a huge lot of study work to do before I can name all the colours in English (I even can't in Dutch)

Oh, yellow and purple make a beautiful pair indeed. There must be a bit of spring in the air over there:)

We still have a lot of snow here (but luckily a sunny day today)!
