I realised i had many photographs of flower in the blue-purple colours and some I had already posted earlier on my blog. I am sticking to the colour Blue. Just for the fun of it, i have arranged them in order of the size of the flowers. Except for the third flower, the others are considered wild/weed. I wonder what the third flower is.
