Venus's looking Glass

Observation - Venus's looking Glass . Description: A beautiful arable 'weed' Found in a weedy corner of a Rape field, missed by the farmers herbicide. Took five attempts to finally see it open. It seemed whenever I set out to see it, the clouds came over and the petals closed up tight. Quite a scarce plan

A beautiful arable 'weed' Found in a weedy corner of a Rape field, missed by the farmers herbicide. Took five attempts to finally see it open. It seemed whenever I set out to see it, the clouds came over and the petals closed up tight. Quite a scarce plant up here. Just about at the edge of its range. A sprawling annual. About 30cm tall, flowers when open are about 5mm across. Leaves are oblong, unstalked and have wavy edges
