Centaurea cyanus
(Bachelor's Buttons)

Roadside in Kingston Springs, TN

One Bachelor's Buttons/Corn Flower that caught my eye.
This was so close to perfect among the masses and the
light was to die for low & breaking through the trees.

Also added a painting of this plant today...

The plant can also be seen and better described as a study here...

Beautiful work as usual! There are a lot of beautiful flowers on the roadsides before the mowing crews mows them down.
