Isn't she beautiful! This is the sight which greeted me this morning, the first three cornflower blooms.

I've always loved cornflowers but have never grown them myself. In fact I don't remember even having seen a cornflower plant before. Four months ago I planted some Polka Dot Cornflower seeds, a dwarf variety of cornflowers. It's been exciting to watch as the plants grew taller and taller then slowly the buds began to form.

There are many more buds swelling, in an intriguing variety of colours. I think I may soon have enough to cut some blooms to enjoy inside too.
Do you leave all your flowers in the garden or do you like to bring some into your home as well?
