True Colours Thursday - Violet.

I've had so much trouble finding violet photos for today - I mean, exactly what colour is violet?
As children we learned the seven colours of the rainbow - red, orange, green, blue, indigo, violet - but I could never see more than a vaguely purplish colour.
So that's what I eventually decided, vaguely purplish photos!

Hebe flowers are purplish, but are they violet?

Maybe this chive flower is violet.

Ah, but surely these violas are

I always thought violet was light purple? More pink than blue? The colour you have in your pictures right now?
Love the pictures!
