A trip to a lake today, a man-made lake but it's been there for decades. It's a managed property, there is a bit of woods, reeds at water's edge, but also mown grass not far from the shore. A few wildflowers there, so here is the first I'd like to identify:



These were sprinkled around here and there; this one right up under a tree. It may not be apparent that these were a pale blue, with a slight lavender tinge. I think the photo color is a bit light and they look almost white, but on the ground they are definitely blue.
