Wildflower - Bachelor's Button

Near Coulterville, CA

AKA Cornflower
I found this wildflower among the poppies when we stopped at the side
of the road coming back from Yosemite.
The purple flower is a Bachelor's Button (Centaurea cyanis)
One of the delights of photography - it slows us down enough
to see things we would otherwise miss!

other sizes: small medium original auto

Do you know the name of this purple wildflower? They are all over my cottage property.
