Can't get the blues

I don't mean me, I get the blues all the time. When I do, I like to wonder around in my yard taking pictures of flowers. But my camera seems to have a hard time with blue flowers. This is a blue wildflower.No matter what I do, I can't get the color right. It is supposed to be a light blue. I tried changing the white balance on the camera, and a dozen other things on the computer, but this is the best I could do. It's not right.Most of the wild flowers are finished now, and they end up as ugly dried up weeds that I have to pull up. Some go out with a flourish though. These are bigger than your fist.
At the very front of our yard, where I rarely go, there is this big patch of what look like wild morning glories. Most are small.But a few are about 2 inches across.In the summer, the few wildflowers still around will be thorny.Lovely, but not fun to pull up.(That was taken another year. The daisies are all finished because of the hot weather we had.)

I love your floral photos - I do the same thing. I have so many photos of flowers that I have taken over the years. I can't help myself! The blue one that you can't get the color right on is so beautiful - I love the details in the center. It is perfect to me!
