This is my contribution to the Weekly Prompts: Razzmatazz challenge.
What I didn’t know is thar razzmatazz is a colour, variously described as pink, rose, purple or crimson depending on the source.
This ambiguity and the “razz” at the start of the word made me think raspberry and of the North American Purple Finch. I have suggested in the past that Raspberry Finch would have been a better name. Now I’m wondering if Razzmatazz Finch wouldn’t be another option.
