Bachelor Buttons (Cornflower)

We had a profusion of BACHELOR BUTTONS in every shade from pale pink to cornflower blue to purple to maroon. Beautiful, and just the thing to fill in the color of the garden while we waited for everything else to bloom. The only thing I don't like about these beauties is that they get a little straggly between bursts of bloom. We've pulled quite a few clumps out that still had blooms on them because they were flopped over or had so many dead heads. I guess I should start cutting them for fresh flowers inside. Or maybe drying them for fall arrangements.
