Field Mouse-Ear?
Description:

Growing on the roadside verge in a large patch. Flowers almost 2cm across. Flowers five notched white petals. Sepals half length of petals. Flower stem 12cm long. Stem and leaves hairy. Leaves oval and in pairs.Rose suggests that the leaves should be downy with no long hairs, however the leaves have long white hairs on them. So is it another Mouse-Ear?
