A flower at the Roman amphitheatre, Cirencester
The flower is blue, has five petals and a small insect in the middle of it. That was the extent of my knowledge until a fellow contributor informed me that:
'It is a Meadow Cranesbill (Geranium pratense), an erect hairy perennial growing from a thick rhizome. Upper stems and buds have sticky hairs. The flowers are borne in pairs from June to August. The flowers are usually blue, and often a very deep blue on chalky soil, but pink and even white are sometimes seen.'
