Some pics here - they look like the ones I grew  http://patientgardener.wordpress.com/2010/09/05/echium-vulgare/  although the blogger says they didn't attract insects in their garden - they certainly did in my inner city patch.

Our pond is only about 1m x 2.5m and only about 2ft deep (note the ecumenical measurements ).

If you notice a new one where the grass is beginning to turn brown, empty a bucket of water over it to dilute the pee - it should help a bit.

I saw it and snuck back into the house and grabbed the camera and then virtually crawled on my hands and knees across the grass so that I didn't disturb it.  There were lots of frogs hopping about in the garden - obviously they were getting out of the pond pronto!

It's an echium - I grew it from seed about 15 years ago - bees loved it - it didn't grow very tall but was smothered in flowers.  No idea which echium though
