Borage Flower

One of the flowers in our garden that the Hummingbird visit.

 

This is the first year that I planted Borage... I was intrigued when I saw it in a gardening show and they said the leaves tastes like cucumbers. So I had to get some seeds and plant them... although, I haven't tasted the leaves.... I'll have to do that...

 

(Borage officinalis) Family: Boraginaceae
