Photographer's Note

We nearly pulled this plant out from our garden, thinking it was a weed, when suddenly it started to bud and flower... oops ;)
It was a good opportunity to try a flower macro.
Found that it was a "Physostegia Virginiana" or "Gallipoli Heath". Often used in Australian cottage gradens, it is perennial and grows to 1m tall. It apparently bears spikes of tubular pink bells and flowers in Summer.
