august postcard
wed 21 sept 2011


This was the photo I sent out as my august postcard. As I said on the pc, Borage (Starflower) grows wild in our community garden plot. It is a good companion plant to tomatoes because it attracts bees and repels horn worms.

Significant Other mentioned today that he had discovered it's defense against animals. ha!

He went to move one of the branches. "Do you know what I did wrong?" he asks me.

I laugh and say, "you touched it!"

You see all the little furry stuff around the buds? That furry stuff covers all the leaves and stems as well. It looks really soft and fluffy!

But when you grab it, you definitely say "ow!"

Or, in SO's case, you definitely curse loudly.
