The color today is cornflower, a color I really like in my garden as I am drawn to blue, lavender and purple flowers and pots in my garden. Isn’t this flower delicate? I’m not sure what it is though, as usual.
The common names for cornflower are bachelor’s button, bluebottle, boutonniere flower, and hurtsickle.
Hurtsickle? Where does that word come from? It is named so, because the plant is difficult to cut down!
The cornflower is an annual flowering plant native to Europe. In the past it often grew as a weed in cornfields, hence its name. Now the plant is endangered in its natural habitat due to the overuse of herbicides destroying the fields. How sad! So I am showing an all blue cornflower day and a bluish cornflower colored flower for today’s Color Your World choice! Enjoy!
