Globularia salicina   Globe Flower

This puzzled me at first because I knew I recognised the flowers from somewhere but couldn't think where. They are typical Globularia flowers of course but I've usually seen them on low growing herbs in southern Europe and never before on a shrub.

Globularia salicina according to my book doesn't flower at this time of year so perhaps that explains the rather manky looking flowers. It grows in the Canaries as well as in the Madeira archipelago.
