So vivid. What is a weed really ...I've always loved the flowers on this plant. You have taken a lovelyshot of them in the soft evening light. Very nice and beautiful.
Such a lovely capture! Cheers, Coco
Elegant composition. Beautiful!
You're right on the species.
Yes, Viper's Bugloss, a member of the Borage Family.
Thanks, Will. I use to see them near the sea, sometimes growing directly in the sand dunes, but this is the first time they have shown up in my backyard. I quite like the bright colours
What you saw on the dunes was more than likely Purple Viper's Bugloss, it likes dry sandy places, especially dune systems.
Looking at it again, it's not the Purple, as it has only two stamens protruding.
I think you're right, Will. Thanks for the help
Had a chat to a botanical friend, and she told me that Denmark is too far north for Purple Viper's Bugloss. She works at Kew.
