“Do you like cornflowers?” I was certain I heard the gardener say.
“Very much!” I replied excitedly envisioning a sea of blue amongst the velvet violets of bearded irises and buttery yellow of day-lilies.
“What are these?” I asked when the job was done, pointing to odd looking flowers, whose centers over-powered the drooping petals.
“Cone flowers,” he smiled. “Just as we agreed.”
