A color, a plant, lavender is something that either makes you think of a sweet summertime floral scent, or a cool misty color. Known for a semi mourning color, because shades of purple and mauve have been traditional for half mourning, it also evokes the image of a little old lady. Or maybe it makes you think of twilight, not the book or film, but that time of night when the sun has set and the sky takes on shades of blue and purple. Lavender shadows on the snow. A field of lavender.
