This Phacelia tanacetifolia, or fiddleneck, I found growing in Lincolnshire last summer. It is a wonderfully helpful plant, for it is a 'green manure' which adds nutrients when cut down and dug in. It is also known as an 'insectary plant', which attracts bees and other pollinators to a given crop, which assists with increasing the grower’s yield. Furthermore, it attracts hover flies which enjoy eating aphids. What is there not to like about this flower? Some are pretty but do little other than use up nutrients. Others, like vegetables, are useful, but are ugly to behold. Fiddleneck is both attractive as well as useful. Would that we were, too.

…but showing all good fidelity, that they may adorn the doctrine of God our Saviour in all things. Titus 2:10b, NKJV
