Can anybody id this one.
Found in a field where the crop recently failed.
I feel I should know it but my brain isn't cooperating on this one and before I go through my wildflowers of Britain book with a fine toothcomb I thought maybe somebody here might help ....

Is it phacelia?

yes it is Phacelia, often grown as a green manure crop. The bees love it.

That was a quick response, thank you both.
yes it is and that explains it, I was looking in the wrong place!
It's really a lovely little plant and a good self seeder I believe...

Would love to have that in my garden and it looks like clay so it might be possible. Thankyou.
