Blue Chrysanthemums

Although I enjoy flowers in their natural states it’s sometimes fun to see them in quirky or unusual ways such as these blue Chrysanthemums that I recently purchased as a table decoration. If you like you can even dye your flowers.

Cornflower blue

The brilliant blue colour of the cornflower really is eye-catching even in a field of meadow flowers. According to folklore, cornflowers were worn by young men in love; if the flower faded too quickly, it was taken as a sign that the man’s love was not returned.
