lance leaf self heal
Prunella vulgaris var. lanceolata

This flower definitely caught my attention as I don't remember ever noticing it before. (it could be due to my poor memory or due to the fact this place is new for me). I've never heard of self heals until I looked it up. It reminded me a little of a stouter hedge nettle and figured it was in the mint family. The bumble bees seem to love this flower. I'm curious to know how it came by its common name.
