Little Flower


A beautiful small Blue Geranium? flower with gorgeous blue and purple colouration with a white centre.This was growing on someones allotment plot besides the path.I knelt down and took the photo of the flower.
There was a Dandelion growing on one of my dug beds, and I also saw my first daisy of the year.
A big bumble bee and a ladybird were also photographed today.
Spring sunshine, flowers, and insects made it a pleasant day off from work.

Hi Dee,I tried to dig up a clump from Mr Saddiq's plot and have a little pot growing.I have the Geraniums that were growing last year in the garden but I think they were more pink coloured,
The Blue flower on this is like a hologram, beauty in a small flower!

i believe the blue flower is actually Veronica arvensis from the Scrophulariaceae family. It's like a chickweed plant.
