One of our tall flowering water plants (which name escapes meSad) About 3ft tall with a spire of tiny blue flowers. Very often the flowers rot before they are fully out but this year they fared much better.

A big thank you to everyone who commented and voted on recent efforts.

Best wishes
Carole

A lovely flower well composed against it's own leaf and neutral b/g.
The individual flowers look good for close up work.
