The edge of one of our wild areas, where it meets the grass path, hosts a beautiful speedwell. I think this one is the birds-eye speedwell.

Speedwell is also known as Paul’s Bettony and is used as a medicinal herb.

A long blooming, easy to care for perennial, Speedwell is prized as a garden flower by some but others see it as invasive and a quick “Google” on Speedwell seems to show up more results about how to manage it than about it’s benefits!
