This is a plant that I like very much. I is so beautiful! It is rare in Sweden, but I have seen a few of them at the west coast. In Brittany (Bretagne) they are common. It is very special, with its blue-green colours. Thanks for sharing this lovely picture and for telling me the name in English! Its latin name is Eryngium maritimum (martorn in Swedisn).
Very nie picture you start with, Ron.
Well composed and nice colours. It's a bit soft.
