Obelixx ... we have a burnt orange velvet cushion ... it looked just fabulous with the yarn when I was knitting the cardi ... it was the perfect colour to go with that green and John Lewis haberdashery had the exact colour 

I don't do orange flowers ........... except for that amazing trailing begonia I had a couple of years ago ... oh, and nasturtiums ......... and calendulas ........... maybe I do do orange flowers after all .

Yes, that worked ... not a great photo ... too much sofa and not enough cardi .... but definitely a cardi with attitude as befits Wonky

Have a lovely outing BL   Hope all goes well for your OH 

Hosta   You've trained him well 

Pdoc ... that sounds a very practical solution 

NannyB ... we sent virtual pizzas to Nora and the team last night in case they were working late on the glitch 

A gentle game of tennis is planned for later this morning, but first you'd better take a look at Wonky's husband cardi 

Oh!  It won't appear ... perhaps it'll post from my phone ... hold on a min

Can someone help identify this plant please?

On reflection and now that I'm able to zoom in I tend to agree with Borderline's suggestion of Phacelia.

It's often included in mixes of seeds for pollinators.

It looks a bit like my Cephalaria gigantea, but that has pale yellow flowers ... don't know if there are similar plants with different coloured flowers ...?
