Photo taken 5/07/07 at Totternhoe, Beds., on one of my local walks.

I was completely thrown by this flower and initially thought it must be something very rare and exotic! I just saw the single flower, very close to the ground. If I'd seen a lot of flowers higher up, then I think I would have recognised it straightaway - we have a variety of it in our garden in Kensworth. The wild version flowers between June and October.
