Random plant event: Brunnera 'Jack Frost' flowers

Owing to the way that things are set up at work, I spend most of my time with the tropicals and annuals, but we have perennials too, and occasionally I wind up getting to see them.

I don't have much to add to this picture; Brunnera is one of those plants I remember kind of liking but the name hasn't really been sticking with me. Hopefully that will change now, though. One of the nice things about having a blog turns out to be that when you're forced to stop and contemplate a particular plant for a post, it does burn the plant's identity into your brain. I think having to come up with posts for PATSP last year is probably how I learned about 40-50% of the annuals. Maybe this year we'll see more perennial pictures.

I got a great deal online for a couple of these this year. Their foliage to me is way more interesting, but the flowers are sweet.

where I live (cambridge, UK) these grow like a weed everywhere and are a total nuisance. You have to pull them up regularly or use weedkiller to keep them down and they have horrible little spines which irritate your skin if you don't wear gloves - it's nice that someone appreciates them though!
