I remember seeing the most beautiful bird fly by my first grade classroom window. I could not believe there was a bird that color. I stared at the window praying it would return. A short while later, the Blue Jay came back and rested on the sill. The periwinkle color of the Jay was what transfixed me. It's still one of my favorite colors to wear...just hard to find. Periwinkle has a hint of violet-purple-lavender in it.
Periwinkle stands for: Serene, purity and infinity. Honeybees prefer blue flowers. Philosophy grads' tassels are blue because it represents deliberation, introspection and conservatism. Who likes Blue Jays or Periwinkle to wear or decorate with?
