Blue flower in field

Observed: 15th October 2011 By: guy@first-light...

Blue flower about an inch or so across. At first sight there appered to be 10 petals but the flowers were fading and I may have been looking at 5 split petals. There were a number of these plants scattered over an area of a grassed field. The plants were about a foot or so tall and the leaves were lanceolate and the stems possibly ridged. Sorry for poor photo' I only had my 'phone camera.
