Wild Carrot flower blue dilly dilly

While out shopping for flowers for my mother-in-law’s birthday I spotted this dyed Wild Carrot flower in a bouquet. I loved how the blue colour brought out the detail of the bloom. The Wild Carrot (Daucus carota), when freshly cut, will draw or change colour depending on the colour of the water in which it stands. The inflorescence is a compound umbel, (a new term for me) and each umbel contains several umbellets.
