Borage In The Fall Garden

With it’s cucumber scent, borage doesn’t seem to fit in with the pumpkin spice of the season, but a late-season harvest will lift our moods as the days grow shorter.

An Abundance of Borage (Starflower)

Borage spontaneously grows in nearly every corner of everyone’s yard. It’s a great substitute (or addition) to your usual steamed greens.

Blue Flowers

Pre-spring in the garden brings out some of my favorite blue-colored flowers. In addition to the regular irises and two kinds of bluebells, the garden is currently loaded with volunteer borage plants and the two big patches of evansia irises.
