Marsh woundwort

Thanks all for help with ID. I seem to get it wrong quite often - can anyone recommend a good and reliable guide book?

Getting it wrong...

...is all part of learning! Don't worry about it.
I think there are some threads on the forum about field guides. I use quite a few, but my favourite is Wild Flowers of Britain and Ireland by Blamey, Fitter and Fitter. A new edition has just been published. I also like Harrap's Wild Flowers by Simon Harrap, if you prefer photographs. Other books will become essential as you become more experienced, however - you can't have too many!
