Macro Monday: Desert Canterbury Bells

“…human names for natural things are superfluous. Nature herself does not name them. The important thing is to know this flower, look at its color until the blueness becomes as real as a keynote of music.” ~ Sally Carrighar

Also called Desert Bluebell:

Try as I might, I can not for certain identify the light purple flowers in the foreground, but they are so pretty!

I believe they may be: Blue Phacelia/Wild Heliotrope/Scorpionweed:
