A floral interlude...

Field Pansy Viola arvensis
 While wandering the redpoll field at Birling on Sunday I noticed a few tiny flowers emerging. Many were Field Pansy but nearer the car were a few larger specimens. We wondered if they were another species? On checking the guides, I find they are indeed, they are Heartsease or Wild Pansy. Lovely.
