Eryngium/Today's Flowers #6

@ mirandablue
Eryngium, Seaholly

Any idea what this flower is called? Spotted this at the botanical garden in Seattle.

Very pretty. Wild flowers are the best.

Hmmm, it looks like sugar proteus but am not pretty sure. Maybe the one commenter above is right.

I have no idea what they are but this shot is wonderfully filled with detail!
I think this would be a great shot in sepia as well.

Thanks for visiting my guest friend post this week. :)
