I wonder what these flowers are, too. They are frequent along the roadsides from NM to TX and in the mountains of NM. The wildflower book is always at the other place when we need it and online sources don't seem to work as well for this. I think they may be a variety of lupine. Hopefully someone will know for sure.

These are growing in the neighbors backyard garden...I need to catch the owner and ask if he knows what he planted (hope so)....will let you know.

Is this in your garden? My wife says this looks like acultivated variety of Veronica (a perennial). If it is growing wild, it could be an escape. There are salvias which have a similar growth habit - crush a leaf and see if it smells minty - but the flowers do not look quite right. Can you get adetailed close-up of a flower?

Penolta, I went through an arboretum last night and found something similar to this pic...it was called Blue Charm Speedwell- Veronica spicata. Since this is the neighbors plant, I'd better not crush a leaf and haven't had a chance where the wind is calm to get a good shot of the petals.....Hope this helps the mystery....and thanks for looking and commenting.
