White borage not the blue and others with a photo of us.

To the Bible men will return; and Why?  Because they cannot do without it.

Matthew Arnold

Beware of laxness or harshness in dealing with sin.

Joshua 22: 15-34. Chapter 7 : 11-13
A shallow, rusty – iron , trug – shaped container with flowers.πŸ˜…πŸ™ƒπŸ˜‰

While walking near Stoner we came across a group of people outside a farm house and in front of some stuff was a sign. “Take what you want”. They were decluttering in preparation for a move.  I chose this trug.

Our garden has thrived with all the rain but so have the weeds.  I thought pale persicaria with its v-shaped rust marking on every leaf suited the container and I also included borage with its hairy buds and leaves as it is coming up here and there in the garden.

The star-shaped flowers and buds that hang their heads are borage.  Hairy and prickly but a European herb whose flowers can be used in soups and salads.

Shyness in the young may be charming to look at but is painful to the one who suffers it.

Dorothy Whipple

The way you overcome shyness is to become so wrapped up in something that you forget to be afraid.

Lady Bird Johnson.

I never wish to offend, but I am so foolishly shy,  that I often seem to be negligent, when I am only kept back by natural awkwardness.

    That borage flower is really lovely. Never seen it before.
