I sowed a pot in March with a mixture of Corn Flowers, and California Poppies. The Cornflowers have flowered first, and elbowed out the California Poppies.
I love the electric blue, in past years when the UK was more agricultural ploughing fields used to unleash a sea of Blue.
It is upto gardeners now to keep this wildflower growing in our gardens.
Its like the more snappily dressed cousin of the Bachelors Button, which are also growing under the big Apple tree here.
I do like blue flowers, it is very calming. My basket above it is planted in blue and white coloured flowers.

I also love Cornflowers and miss their wild abundance in corn fields along with ordinary Poppies which are rarely seen nowadays! Val
