flax in blue
we happened to be at a pick-your-own farm nearby when a field of flax was in bloom. I spotted pretty blue flowers, made a few pics and then asked the lady in the farm shop "are those linen?". the word "flax" escaped me at that point, but we quickly arrived on it. She said that she had no idea what these plants were, and asked a guy who was passing by "Listen, are those flax plants?". He scratched his head and said - "what, those blue ones? Naah, they are linseed".
We didn't argue, although it is the same thing.
Now this field is almost ripe, but I like the blue version better
