One lone chicory flower in the grass after the season has passed. Love the curly stamens, hairy petal edges and pollen waiting for the bees.

My first sighting of chicory each year makes me happy, maybe because of my love of blue flowers. Today is the 4th of July time to celebrate America (the red white and blue), but I’m not feeling that these days.

It might be hard to see, but I had to get to the chicory before the bee.

I’ve seen chicory flowers budding, blooming, closing, and dying before but I don’t believe I’ve seen one in the process of opening before.

The grass is dead and crunchy and the surviving wildflowers are dwarfed.

Chicory shows it’s purple blue flowers in meadows around here and has many culinary and medical uses.

I was going to do a series of graffiti and seams, but yesterday’s post was not a big hit, so back to wildflowers I go. I believe this is chicory. It is blue with hints of purple and was photographed on a cooler day last weekend.
