@gjones about 2/3 of the pot is white I think. Still have no idea where the blue ones came from but they’re a nice combination 😁

@ublaszko it really was! Hoping for a better display given these are self seeded. Usually turn out much better 🤞🏻

Do you use it for drinks? Apparently, you can add it to gin 😆

@ublaszko I made little ice cubes with the flowers last summer but the heavy handed measures of gin negates any taste of borage 🤣🤣🤣

Tried these from seed a couple yrs ago but, as you know, I suck at seeds so I still don't have any borage!

@lesliecole49 once you get one to flowering stage you’ll never be short of them 😛 did you sow them direct?

Thank you, Kerry, but I think I should say no right now. They really take over my garden with their self seeding. Thank you so much. It is very kind of you to offer. 💗

Very pretty! Sorry I haven't responded straight away. I'm currently addicted to a new game called June's Journey. It's like a murder mystery novel set in 1920s but there's a whole side to it about creating your own posh estate and gardens 😆😆😆 I've done an Italianate garden and now I'm making a tropical one 😅

@ublaszko oh my god, I just started playing that last week!!! 🤣 it really is addictive but keep running out of energy 😫

comment
ublaszko

😂😂😂😂😂 Me too! I play it at breakfast and after dinner so it has time to recharge the energy. Also if I run out of energy but have an unopened box, I wait until the energy recharges before opening the box so I get the max energy 😂😂 I keep falling short of flowers to progress to the next level because I don't buy enough items and then I have to wait until they get built 😰 Need to buy more! 😂

@ublaszko love that you time it to make the most of the energy 😛 I’m hardly progressing because I’m determined not to use real money 😜 but I wanna get some land expansions 😡
