Alan S, Thank you for the

Alan S, Thank you for the detailed ID and as you see I put 'It might be this' because I was not sure about the shape of the flower, but to see such details as you put, makes it far more interesting. Unfortunately I do not have any photographs of the lower leaves, but I will probably return to the spot next week and make sure to get the lower leaves. The whole area is a sandy loam, some of which is quite rich and light. Ranon
