Very similar to something I currently have coming up all over my back yard. Probably a different variety that is able to endure the dry conditions here - but it does smell bad. Also, the flowers are very tiny.
These are excellent, finely detailed captures.

I thought for a moment this was an orchid Carol. You've made the humble dead nettle really beautiful! I think (for what it's worth) that V2 has a slight edge, because it seems to be a slightly better-set composition

Umm I like V1 and V3 the cropped V2 is just a bit tight. All lovely and initially I though V3 for me but I am not so sure about the leaf falling across and outside the border - so as a result V1 gets my vote
