Violet Wildflower - Centaurea Jacea**

What nicknames do you have for this one? It is not a cornflower but can be found in abundance in natural meadows. As usuel - only when you look close you can see the beauty and delicacy of this bloom. The bees and other insects love so it is healthy for the environment...

Now this is an unusual flower...I have to say it doesn't impress me from a distance but in the close up it is lovely...of course the color is one of my favs and I like the delicacy of the the tiny petals on the flower...

Cheers
