fearsome beauty

This spiky little divil is called borage.  It is a very useful flower to have in the garden if you want to attract bees.  They just love it.  You can actually eat the flowers and they look great in a salad adding lovely colour to it.  It is also a medicinal plant for ailments such as bronchitis, flu, acne and stress to name a few.  It is rather prickly to the touch as you can see in this photo
