Nigella, also known as 'devil-in-a-bush' or 'love in a mist'.
Nigella damascena has been grown in English cottage gardens since Elizabethan times.
For many years 'Miss Jekyll' was the only widely available variety, and it is still popular for its dependable masses of sky-blue flowers.
“When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not.”
Georgia O'Keeffe quote (American Painter, 1887-1986)
A true blue or purple is not so common in the flower world and not easy to photograph well...
