Blue Cornflower


Blue Cornflower (Centaurea cyanus (Cornflower))

Blue bachelor buttons grew at the front step in the house I was born in, one which I plucked flowers from to wear on my little suits going to church. They always remind me of my mother, she loves blue. Dad loves yellow, so this year, I had a garden to remind me of them every day.
