Photo Challenge: Lavender

Time for another challenge at Project 64: Out of the Box.  Each week a random crayon is chosen from a 64 count box of Crayola Crayons.  That color is used as inspiration for the week, the challenge is to find and photograph the weekly color in the world around us. 

This weeks color is Lavender.  When I think of lavender I think of a light, dusty purple.  Crayola Crayon Lavender, the color inspiration, is more of a cool pink, maybe a pink with a hint of blue, or a very pinkish purple.  Either way I did not have a hard time finding this color.  Thanks to all the blooming flowers around here I found Crayola Lavender everywhere I went.


This is the picture I am submitting for this weeks challenge:

Here are some other lavender pictures I took recently:

This beautiful lavender bush is in my friend Susie's garden:


Lavender sunset and windmills near the Altamont Pass:

Magnolia trees are blooming and I never realized how many there were untill I started looking for this color:


I know you want a lavender Lexus.

I love all your lavender finds,especially the car,lol! but that top photo matches the crayon well, I like that it has the darker lines in it, kind of like the darker lines that happen when you color with the crayon...Thanks for linking up with p64!

I can't believe how many different shades of lavender you managed to find! Your lavendar plants are so different to the ones we have here, our seem so purple in comparison. I loved all of them!!
