A single flower of the Large Blue Alkanet

The blue of these flowers is one of the most beautiful colours in the natural world.

They’re like the bluest of eyes.

They’re the colour of the sky at its deepest, in the very apex of the firmament.

At dusk they shine out – presumably something to do with ultra-violet light.

‘Large blue alkanet’ isn’t a description – it’s a name. Somehow I think it ought to be called something much more special.
