I'm not sure. I couldn't find in any of my wild flower books. Its probably a garden flower.

It looks most like the mountain bluet or mountain cornflower on the UW-Stevens Point site. Introduced in MN, starts blooming in June, so we are close. Asteraceae family, Centaurea montana. Probably related to a bachelor button. I'm not sure I can post a link, so I will refrain. It is listed under wildflowers. I didn't check the garden varieties. Pretty, it's a nice photo.

Several photos, some looking more like yours than others. Thanks Dbl.
