This looks like a Linum sp (flax). Apart from common flax (L. usitatissimum) there are many similar blue species in southern Europe- for instance, Linum narbonense in Spain .... http://www.first-nature.com/flowers/linum_narbonense.php

Hi Paul.
Thank you SO much! I actually didn't get any success on Google images for "blue flower spain"! You'd think ONE flax image might show up!
Thanks again for your help, it's very much appreciated & now I have one more flower named in our book!!
Cheers,
Phil.
