flowers week day 4: blues and purples

All of these blue and purple flowers are from walks through the neighborhood.
Unfortunately, I don't know the names of these. If anyone does, I'd love to know.


  1. I believe the blues are batchelor buttons.

  2. I'm pretty sure the blues are bachelor buttons (also known as cornflowers) and the purple balls are called Allium. Don't know what the reddish purple ones are called, sorry!

  3. I call the purple ones "horton-hears-a-who-flower." My parents neighbor had beautiful bright pink ones that I took a couple shots of, and I didn't know the name of them. Allium sounds right, though. Thanks, Sarah!
