I don't know the name of this plant, wish I did. But I love it and its smothered with blue flowers for all of the summer.
I've used my 50mm f/3.2 plus my 31mm extension tube......hence the rather weird see through look.
I'm sipping a wine while Doug has gone to get a parcel of fish & chips, we are blobbing out big time tonight.
Tomorrow I'm doing a "roadie" with friends and looking forward to it too. Weather forecast is ace.
Its so hot, we are having a fantastic patch of warm conditions 24 degs today, and expected higher for the weekend. I'm heading for the hills (well the main divide) and its meant to be scorching inland.
