Purple

The photograph.  It looks purple to me.  What shade of purple? I haven’t the slightest.  I’m not well versed in the subtleties of purple, lilac, lavender and such because I’m inherently too lazy to care.  Also, these color names are very ambiguous.  What may be someone’s burgundy is someone’s maroon.   Also, naming a color using hexadecimal is quite cumbersome; most people wouldn’t know #FF0000 (red) from #00FFFF (cyan).

The point is that these flowers look purple to me.  They’re strikingly purple and vibrant against the green background.  It almost clashes really.  I wouldn’t know though.  My colour theory is a little rusty.  Mayhaps someone might give me some pointers.  Either way, I do hope that this photograph makes your day.
