    The flopwer has opened and could definitely be sticky catch fly. Thank you. Five petals and still with that lovely casing underneath. I wonder if that's where a fly gets digested?

    One I think I can do without. Seems very broccoli style. Bet it seeds everywhere, to the delight of my snails.


    My big poppies haven't burst out of their hiding places yet (bud pod?) , but I am really looking forward to it!
    The marigolds (calendula) are doing well as is the pale flax.

    Now I can see the flower in full bloom, is the pink flower Sorrel? The yellow flower looks like white mustard.

    Yes, the white mustard is a distinct possibility. Thanks. But no, I don't think the pink is sorrel. It has a narrow pointed leaf at intervals up the stem before it branches out at the top.

    I think the pink one might be a corn cockle.

    Not my photo. This is the corn cockle. What do you think?

    Don't think so, flower stalks are wrong.

    Oh, true and it doesn't have the star shape around the flower. :(

    How about Herb Robert? Only thing with red stems and a pink 5-petal bloom.

    I know, but it doesn't have that casing the flower pops out of and sits above.
    Hmm.

    How about Crane's Bill? Failing that it's a pink flopwer. :D

    No. bud picture for cranesbill not right.

    It's a flopwer. I've decided. :) It will be interesting to see if that hazelnut-shaped bit below the flower becomes a seedpod.
