      It does look like a variation of a shooting star but Borage is definitely the right flower. I like the common name of starflower.

      Thanks!

    • HEY! That’s my sekret trick, how I get to look smart about stuff. It’s Google image search where you get to upload an image and it finds visually similar images.

      Oh well, here’s one I didn’t search from my neighbor’s yard because laziness. I appreciate blue flowers more now because of @lidja ‘s comment about them being more rare than most othe colors.

      I saw some early dahlias.

      And there were many colors of gazania (African daisies).
