Photographer's Note

Visited Kotka city and Herb garden there. This particular herb is called Borage which is sometimes called as starflower. Starflower is quite eatable and it is used in sallads and as a decoration. Borage seeds can be used to make oil which has medical purposes. The Herb Garden is situated in Redoubt Kotka, a small 18th century fortress structure. Some of it's tile structure is seen on background of this image but I was more facinated about the blues of this plant.
