    Looks like a Blue Swedish to me. I like to call the Lavenders 'light blue' because the coloring is that of a paler blue grey to that of the fellow you have [​IMG]

    I don't have photos, but blue is a dark slate gray with a bluish cast to it. Lavender is a light silverish gray with a very faint brownish tint to it. Splash is a very faint silverish gray without the brownish tint to it. Splash might be splotchy and might not.

    This is blue. I don't think I've got any photos of my lavender or splash.
