    I love the tiny blue flowers of speedwell

    Each short-lived flower is about 1cm across and sky blue in colour, with a few flowers per spike. There is a white centre, and it has prominent stamens.

    The flowers are so eyecatching among the fresh green grass.

    In the language of flowers it is associated with fidelity.
