    Hi John-long time no see,

    No it isn't that one, I remember it, I still have some of those large flowered dead nettle and they aren't in flower yet-these ones are in full glorious bloom and look smashing at the moment.

    It is a lot of fun doing it this way I think too Ziggy

    :scratch: OK Lolli, these are my last guesses at the Boraginaceae family...
    Heliotrope.?
    Hounds Tongue (doubtful)
    Pulmonaria or Lung wort
    Oyster Plant (Mertensia maritima)
    Echium plantagineum or Purple Vipers Bugloss

    :scratch: The only other that springs to mind at present is common Figwort....

    I'll try harder next time Ziggy :D

    I definitely didn't buy it though. At least if I wasn't 36 and prone to forgetfulness I would be definite-seriously doubt it though.
