Take Three Thursday - Different Names

If an effort to notice more in my life, I have decided to share what I have noticed this week in Take Three Thursday.  The idea is to take 3 photos that are linked some how; by theme, by colour, by date, by moment,  by points of view. There is no formal link in but please feel free to join in.  What have you noticed this week?

See what these friends have noticed this week:
Maggie: Farmers Wife Day By Day  
Eileen: In My Playroom 

I have a beautiful blue/purple flower in my garden right now in full bloom & two of my visitors have commented on it.  Both called it by a different name.  Jenn called it Centaurea; Penny called it Cornflower &  I call in Bachelor's Button.
Centaurea cyanus
Bachelor's Button


Regardless of what it is called, it seeds itself freely, the bees like it & it is rather pretty in a floral arrangement.


  1. Yes, they are pretty right now. I've heard all three names as well. -Jenn

  2. It's lovely, and a flower I haven't had in my garden for a long time. I'll look for it next time I go to the garden center.

  3. I know it as cornflower. I have a different image for batchelor's button.

  4. So enjoying these spring beauties in your posts as I catch up with a little blog reading this evening! So lovely!
