it would help if you could take a pic from more of a distance to see how big the flowers are compared to the leaves

Looks like forget-me-not. Will now have a look at the links to see if I'm right.

Eddtheduck - I think it is Thunbergia grandiflora. It was the only thing I could find with the correct seed head. The leaves are not visible in your picture so could not compare them. It seems to be a good plant not often seen.

Yup, without the leaves and a size comparison it's difficult. There's new breeds of plant beyond the basic ones too e.g. Thunbergia (Black eyed susan) has varients now.
