Monte Stena is red in November (see yesterday's post) but blue in October, one of the flowering periods of the Hyssopus, a herbaceous plant of the genus Hyssopus native to Southern Europe, the Middle East, and the region surrounding the Caspian Sea. Due to its properties as an antiseptic, cough reliever and expectorant, it is commonly used as an aromatic herb and medicinal plant. (wiki)

So pretty! The hyssop in my garden are pink-orange. I like this blue much better.
