I've been meaning to get a picture of these purple flowers for ages. Normally when I'm here, it's too dark to make an attempt but this morning I'm walking to the next bus stop to drop something at the cobblers so I have a window of opportunity. In the early morning dappled light the flowers are looking at their best. Im not sure what species they are, but they seem a little out of time. I expect it to be summer and bees would be buzzing around with great enthusiasm. But it's November, the bees are tucked up for the winter and these are still blooming.
