Could someone identify this for me. I've been on Google and am tending towards 'columbine'.
It's taken in open meadows.

Dave, looks like a Bluebell judging by the leaves.

I would agree with Janet.
Although usually found more in woodland, my vote is a bluebell.

Thanks for your help.
I have trouble growing weeds.
The funny thing was then gentlemen who asked me what flower it was as I took the shots.

Point a camera at a flower and all of a sudden you're Alan Titchmarsh's next door neighbours best friend... Smile

Bluebells I think grow in woodland because woods are usually areas of undisturbed land and I think they like to be undisturbed. Whereas poppies like disturbed land so often grow in fields that have been ploughed.

Oh - and I would describe them as wild flowers rather than weeds. (Weeds being a plant in the wrong place - so some famous gardener once said, but I don't know who!)

Angie, they were taken nearby on a right of way over fields past Seaton Carew golf course.
I'd describe as meadow land rather than woodland but generally undisturbed.

Yes, the Spanish ones, our native bluebells have flowers that hang like bells from a single curved stem.

The Spanish ones grow in more places, they're less fusy abnd invsive.
That said our native ones aren't confined to Woodlands. Check out Skomer for example Smile

Columbine Dave is the 'adopted' name for Aqilegias, which the wild ones are usually mauve but have been modified for gardens and come in many colours and very pretty variations.
