Finally got an Internet connection (of sorts). Had a wander around the fields at the farm I'm stopping at. It's purely arable but all the fields have at least a 10m border around them for wild flowers. Normally they tend to be predominantly yellow but this year blues/violets seem to have the edge (perhaps the time of year).

This one grows profusely in my garden but I have no idea what it is.

No prizes for this one.

But can anyone tell me what these are?

I put some Borage in this year, two foot high it said, well the plants didn't get the message. They went nuts and completely took over, I haven't ever had so many bee's in the garden. They have gone over now, so they got pulled out before they could seed.

First one is borage, the bees love it but it can spread like mad.

Tell me about it! It grows quicker than I can cut it down. I hate to think what it's going to be like when I get home!

+2 for good old borage.

 

Unless I'm mistaken number 3 is willowherb

 

I don't recognise number 4 but I've seen number 5, I just can't put a name on it at the moment.
