When starflowers sprout, bees follow

I honestly don’t recall when I first planted the Borage herb in my garden. I just know that every year it reseeds and returns.

The plant is incredibly prolific and doesn’t require any attention, other than water. One year it overtook an entire corner of my backyard, creating a mini Borage field. It was quite lovely with all those blue star-shaped flowers.
