Speedwell or Cat's Een Design Story
Part of the daily routine, that I try to stick to in order to improve my health, is a walk of however far I can manage to go. Most days I only make it a little ways and one place I visit often is the cemetery that is in view of the North Sea in Aberdeen. I wish I had the energy to make it down to the beach everyday, but I usually have to settle for only seeing the sea from a distance. I can make it to the beach, but the walk home is sometimes too much.
On one of my daily walks during April, it was extra sunny and very hot so I had to sit under a tree in the shade to cool off before making my way back home. I saw a little blue flower next to me. It was so delicate and pretty, that I took one home to identify. I should note I only picked the flower because it is in the part of the grass that is usually cut, and I wasn't sure when they were going to mow. I thought having one would make it easier to identify than just having a photo.
The flower is called a speedwell and is quite common in the British Isles. There are many varieties of speedwells, and I'm not completely sure which variety I encountered (my plant identification skills need some work), but I think it was a germander speedwell. . They are usually found in hedgerows,
