Blue and beautiful...
Blue borage flowers are a stunning colour,
and the bees just adore them.
In fact blue borage honey is one of my favourites.
The borage self-seeds freely in the garden.
For a special touch to summer drinks,
the little blue flowers look fabulous if you freeze them in icecubes.
The young leaves have a cucumber taste.
If grown near tomatoes, the borage is meant to improve flavour,
as well as being a bee magnet which is great for pollination.
