Forgot to thank you for including it again in this post.
Can you tell I love borage?

Of course everything else is lovely as well, but the borage - oh my!
Just grabs my heart for some reason. I think maybe because I don't have much luck growing it here.

There's something about borage in the early morning light with the diamond-y dew still sparkling all over them. They are one of my favourites too. They remind me of spring time in Tuscany ... it grows everywhere. I love the multiple colours on the plants ... you just reminded me I saw one that was about to bloom pink yesterday ... I missed that when I picked out the "pinks" today : ) I'll get it for sure tomorrow.
I challenged myself to record something every day from the garden when I started this blog ... and I forgot to register an end date on that decision : ) So who knows how long I can keep up a daily record, but for now there's plenty to find out there : ) It's therapeutic puttering out in the garden and I tell my hubby that photographing the plants qualifies as gardening : ) He agrees ... he's a keen photographer too.

Doing anything in the garden is therapeutic for me.

I think it might be the fuzziness on the borage that creates an almost iridescent glow when combined with dew and early morning light. Your pictures are gorgeous.

I always look forward to your blogs and I feel sure you'll find something beautiful, different, eye-catching and wonderful to share with us even in winter! Smiling
