Bachelor's Button

I found it! The new-to-me flower is a Bachelor's Button! It’s also called a Cornflower or a Bluebottle. There’s a lot of folklore associated with the Cornflower too, if Wikipedia is to be trusted! In the “old days” if a gentleman wore a cornflower it told the world he was in love! However, if the cornflower faded quickly, it was an omen that the love would fade too! It was the favorite flower of President John F. Kennedy.
