This tiny bloom has appeared at the allotment.
The flowers are only about 5mm across.
Does anyone have a clue what it might be . I suspect it isn't edible.

What a super set of horticulturalists we are......no one has a clue about it's identity and I have to declare I have to join the band.......no idea either, Barbara.
But I can appreciate it's beauty and unusual structure, efficiently recorded by you in this shot.

Nice shot !.....I found some of these growing in the sandy cliff tops in Pembroke in May.....'acquired' one in a pot, but I think it may have not survived, I'll have
to wait now till next Spring to see if it comes to life ????..........might possibly be 'Viper's Bugloss'....but try Google - Images, you may find it there ???????
