Cornflower blue has a lot of purple

I particularly like these, which are currently flowering in the garden. Wikipedia informs me that cornflower blue is a shade of medium-to-light blue containing relatively little green compared to blue. This hue was one of the favorites of the Dutch painter Johannes Vermeer, his other most-noted favourite being yellow. The most valuable blue sapphires are called cornflower blue, having a medium-dark violet-blue tone.
Amazing what you find out at 365!
Lovely colour and composition. Mine are still at the bud stage but hopefully won't be long, I think they will be fun to photograph!

Interesting information Clare. I've learnt so much since joining 365. A lot of it having very little to do with photography! Great shot looks good on black Fav
