Here is my Cat's Eye from last year --it  hasn't bloomed yet this year.   I think the two look very similar, but I think the beard on yours does look more blue than violet and mine looks more violet.  But the difference between blue and violet is small and light, rain and angle could also influence the tone of the color.  What I don't see in either one is the old gold.

I think this is Cat's Eye (Black) BUT the checklist reads " beards old gold, violet base."  It could just be that all that dark red around it could make it look more "blue" than "violet" - at least to me.  The pic also shows the effects of all the rain we've had here in Northern KY.  Any comments/help appreciated in advance.
