Bleuets

It's cornflower time at the flower market! I love cornflowers though they are so rarely found these days out in the fields.
-----------------------------
C'est la saison des bleuets au marché aux fleurs. J'adore les bleuets, ils se font si rares au bord des champs.

Strangely in Italian this is called fiordaliso. (Nothing to do with the fleur de lys...)

Je n'en ai jamais vu dans un champ ici en France... uniquement chez des floristes... quel bleu magnifique quand même, bleu profond... royal...

Shows how much I know! I thought cornflowers would be yellow.

Lovely photo; just superb color!

I love cornflowers, too. Here they are annuals but they do reseed themselves if I don't mess around too much with the soil in my gardens.

Hate to say it, but, I have never heard of them. Very pretty, though.

Wow! I don't think I ever saw blue cornflowers - and THAT is an incredible blue!!

Russ said...

Wow - that is some serious blue!

Il est vrai que les coquelicots nous ont fait un long récital et que je n'ai vu qu'une fois des bleuets sauvages dans un champ cette année. Ceux de ton fleuriste me semblent déjà un peu moins sauvageons. Les encore moins sauvageons s'appellent "centaurées" et se reproduisent à foison dans les jardins.
Associés à des coquelicots des marguerites et des épis de blés les bleuets font de très jolis motifs de broderie pour une nappe.

Ladies and gents: cornflowers ARE blue! At least the ones that used to grow wild with poppies in the fields when I was a child! It was so pretty, red and blue amidst the wheat...

Delightful photo of vibrant blue flowers. Makes me want to drive to the store and try to find something similar to put on my kitchen table.
In preparation for my visit, I have just watched Le Roi Soleil for the third time and am reading one biography of Louis XIV and have another one ordered.

Salut mon amie! In fact, I did help Aref get his Afghanistan blog registered with CDP so I'm also surprised that it didn't show up on the CDP site?? C'est bizarre, je sais!

Bon weekend! Bonjour d'EAGAN daily photo
