Where flowers bloom, so does hope.
All summer I have asked in every garden centre I’ve been to (and there’s been a few!) if they had any Borage plants or seeds.
I must have been too late though as there was no sign of either.
I had read Borage is brilliant for bees so was quite enthusiastic to have some in my garden. Eventually I thought, I’ll just have to wait for next year.
Imagine my surprise when on returning from two weeks away my little wildflower garden (planted with a packet of un-named seeds) had turned from this to this!
I had a sneaking suspicion that the little blue star flowers might in fact be Borage and they are! It was growing in my garden all along! Right under my nose.
Funny how often things turn out after all.
