By ‘eck that’s an echium alright.

The fairly modest 9foot tall echium of last summer has developed two flower spikes this year, and it must be over 15 feet tall, and full of busy buzzing bees.  Actually 15 feet might be an underestimate – if you look very closely at the top, where the apex meets the thin veil of cloud – you might just spot the evil giant peering down.  I guess he’s worried about losing another pot of gold.
