Green Alkanet

It cannot be confused with Speedwells as the plant leaves and flowers are so much bigger. It is an abundant plant in Beccles Vc25 east Suffolk

Pentaglottis sempervirens

It's worth taking the flowers of Pentaglottis and Veronica apart to appreciate just how different they are. And common enough so that picking bits is not a problem.
