Friday’s ride home took me past this field of mauve flowers. I had no idea what they were but I have since found out that it is Borage*. It sure is pretty, anyway!
When I met Jess from work she wanted to go for a ride as it was such a nice evening. We decided to head out to Southwold as she really enjoys the roads out that way. Afterwards we stopped in at the Beccles McDonalds for a coffee and chat with the other bikers there.
And this is what Jess’ helmet looked like after riding down the Acle Straight on our way home!
* Borage, also known as starflower, is an annual herb originating in Syria. Traditionally borage was cultivated for culinary and medicinal uses, although today commercial cultivation is mainly as an oilseed. Borage production does include use as either a fresh vegetable or a dried herb. As a fresh vegetable, borage, with a cucumber like taste, is often used in salads or as a garnish.
