Borage - Borago officinalis

I didn't expect to take a photo of borage at this time of the year but it is in full flower in the poly tunnel. It was late in flowering and didn't appear in the garden like it usually does, must be the weather. The flowers are great frozen in cubes of ice or dropped straight into glasses, the plant has a cucumber flavour. Bees love borage flowers and you occasionally see borage honey for sale.
