Colour from the Season - Sea Holly blue

Keeping up with this colour notebook, I find myself looking at things more intently than I used to and have to restrain myself from delving into borders to sample colours that I like the look of (though I will admit I've found it impossible to resist a couple!). My intention was to document at least a years (four seasons) worth, but I've a feeling this colour relationship might go on even longer.

Well, it rained on St Swithin's day last week! - but I  happen to know that Sea Holly is flowering at the coast at the moment and it likes sun, so, optimistically, maybe it's a good time to highlight it's hazy summer colours...
