Sometimes the blue that’s violet or purple is white

White Bluebell Flowers 0892

Speaking of bluebells (Eustoma exaltatum ssp. russellianum), which my eyes and brain see as violet or purple, I’ll add that occasionally the flowers are mostly white. That’s obviously the case in this view from July 16 on the Blackland Prairie in far northeast Austin. Note the faint traces of the normal color rising into the petals’ whiteness.
