Blue Flower

I thought this blue flower very pretty although I do not know the name of it however on closer inspection I noticed the little red stalks that looked like mushrooms on it.  You will see them better on the second image. 




Photographed in David's Garden.

Many thanks for your visit and also your comments.

  7. Yes, they are the stamens. It looks like a spider in the center, doesn't it? This is a gorgeous blue flower!
