Komkommerkruid of Benargie (Borago officinalis)

Deze mooi blauwe bloempjes kan je eten. Smaken, hoe kan het ook anders met zo'n naam, naar Komkommer.

Hoi Erik,

Waar haal jij al die naam-kennis vandaan? Is het je vak of zo? Het plantje stond tussen allerlei veldbloemetjes. Waarschijnlijk speciaal gezaaid op een ongebruikt stukje grond om onkruid tegen te gaan. Ergens op P. staat er nog een foto van trouwens.

Hartelijk dank voor de info. Gr. Ria

A beautiful photo. Is this a cucumber herb? Or a Borage? If this is your garden if you are lucky! All people need is good friends and a garden! You have many beautiful flower photos in your gallery. OH .. I am looking forward to spring! Greetings Stig

Hello Stig!

Some plants/flowers have different names. The official name is: Borago officinalis. The common name is: Cucumber herb. If you want you can read more information via the blue link in the first comments underneath the photo.

We used to have a garden, but we live in an apartment now. I usually take flower shots in other people's gardens or just on the field, like this shot.

And I'm very much looking forward to the spring, too!!

Greetings from Ria
