Thursday 14 June 2012: Emergency blue
Yes, another flower blip! First thing this morning, we had to go to the gendarmerie to fill in a procuration de vote for Sunday. As we left, I spotted these flowers in the verge and forced S to screech to a halt so I could blip them. Just as well I did because it's the only usable photo I took all day.
According to yearofhappy , a cat is one of the top subjects for emergency blips. But using a photo of an offended looking Mystère was going too far -- even I had to agree that it had no aesthetic qualities.
So this is a true emergency blip, straight out of the camera, no messing.
Edit: I looked at Lo Jardinier's blog after I posted this, and I think it's anchusa azurea -- Italian bugloss. His blog is very handy because he sees the same flowers as me!
