I think this is a wild meadow flower use to pick them in the fields myself as a child, somehow it got into one of my empty pots, probably by birds, what is the name of it please?




Red campion - Silene dioica, to give it its Sunday name.

Agreed - the hedgerows in Cornwall are full of it at the moment - they look glorious in May.
