I love this color of blue. It’s a treat to see patches of it in some lawns here and there and along the road. It’s bugleweed (genus Ajuga). Around here it is a perennial, blooming for a month or so in the spring and then going incognito.

Sometimes it goes native, growing out in the wild on its own. It is known to lower certain hormones in the body and is used by some people to treat mildly overactive thyroids.
