  1. How wonderful to see real blue flowers. That sweet pea is quite lovely. I once rented a house where the globe thistle had self seeded hither & yon. My landlady told me it was Miss Whilmott’s ghost. Certainly acted like it! They are, as Jim said, geometric wonders. What’s between the clary sage & ageratum, the really really blue flower?

      1. Yes, they don’t even resemble each other that closely except maybe in colour. But for years, I called our globe thistle by that name until someone knowledgeable referred to their globe & I thought, wait a minute . . . it’s how I learn.
