Thank You ophrys

Thank you ophrys for identifying the Speedwell as Veronica chamaedrys.

And thanks to all for agreeing the identification.

chamaedrys

chamae is the Greek for 'on the ground' and drys for 'oak'. A nice species name, as the leaves do look like little oak leaves (with a bit of imagination, maybe!).

Extra Information

That's very interesting. I wasn't aware of that.

I can see what you mean about the leaves.

Many thanks.
