Outer beauty

By ColleenA
Good afternoon, a late upload for me today, was surprised by my husband and taken out for a romantic Champagne breakfast. After terrible thunder storms last night we are back to some sunshine.
This is the blue flower fully opened, I uploaded the "Inner beauty" version last week....see V2 as a reminder.
Have a nice SundayGrinGrinGrinGrin

What beautiful scabious these are, they will be out in bloom here in another six weeks or so assuming that the unpredictable British weather behaves itself
Beautiful images..... V2 is my favorite.
