19/52 In The Pink

By sherlob    
Taken whilst out walking the dog (again). These lovely pink wild flowers have started to come into bloom in the last few days on my local route they are common - especially against the bank of the river. I had thought them to be a clover (perhaps red clover), yet the my search on the internet to confirm this has made me think this might not be the case. Clover seems usually to have a pale mark on the leaf and here that is missing. Similarly, red clover is usually much taller at 30-40cm; these were about half that. The leaf here has small hairs on the perimeter and the flower head is rooted in a head of some kind - again not typical of the images of clover I have seen online. Any help with the identification would be appreciated. I have record shot on my phone that I'll try to upload.

Iím confident this is Red Clover after checking the record image.

Whatever the name, you have isolated the wee thing perfectly in your lead image, Adam.
I am in no way a flower expert, but that sure does look very much like clover to me.Smile
