A to Z / P is for Plum and Pumpkin Spice

P is for Plum and Pumpkin Spice

I read that the first recorded use of plum as a colour name in English was in 1805.  The source was Colour Dictionary by A. Maerz and M. Ren Paul - book published in 1930.  Sadly, I could not find a copy of this book in our library system. 

I was introduced to Mirabelle plums while in Paris.  I've not found yellow plums where I live, ours are purplish or reddish in colour.
