What a super set of horticulturalists we one has a clue about it's identity and I have to declare I have to join the idea either, Barbara.
But I can appreciate it's beauty and unusual structure, efficiently recorded by you in this shot.

Nice shot !.....I found some of these growing in the sandy cliff tops in Pembroke in May.....'acquired' one in a pot, but I think it may have not survived, I'll have
to wait now till next Spring to see if it comes to life ????..........might possibly be 'Viper's Bugloss'....but try Google - Images, you may find it there ???????

Lovely shot, Barbara of a very pretty flower. Lovely colour and detailSmile Beautifully captured and presented. Googled it and it is a Phacelia, an annual which grows fast and usually dies in first frost
Take care, Pauline
