Of all the pretty little flowers that bloom in the Spring this is one of my favourites: Germander Speedwell (Veronica Chamaedrys) also known as Bird’s Eye Speedwell.
It’s a tiny flower with flower heads of up to just 4mm across. It’s a common invader of lawns, which is where It grows down the bottom of our garden where we happily let the garden grow wild and where the Lawn Treatment firm haven’t reached, creating a blue haze of colour when seen from a distance.
Not an easy flower to photograph due to its size and because the flowers never line themselves up neatly to make it easy for the photographer to show them en masse (!)
Two images today – one straight and the other given an impressionistic treatment that seems in keeping with this pretty little flower.
