Today's Wordle answer July 3

Today's Wordle answer is: LILAC.

Today's solution has a fairly straightforward definition: it can refer to a prevalent garden shrub and its flowers, and also to the shade of purple those flowers commonly display. Merriam-Webster defines it as a "moderate" purple, in fact, which might explain its frequent association with the fashion choices of mature ladies. And on a related note, Lilac is also occasionally used as a feminine given name, though it's usually overshadowed by more popular flower names like Rose or Lily. And with that, all that's left is for me to appeal to you not to share the answer until tomorrow, so that other Wordle players can have their turn!
