Cornflowers

I went to visit my mother yesterday, she has a huge garden bed full of cornflowers - perfect summer blues.  I am participating in the Lisa's wonderful creative exchange today.

  2. I always hope to find these growing wild again, like they used to. Once found a patch of white ones [before the digital era]

  17. Such a pretty shade of purple...and one day closer on the 365, and the letter C. You're doing great. The shallow DOF is really beautiful.
    Today I filled in the number days on my calendar since I've turned the page to August. I'm at day 340-that way I can see the goal.
