Birdseye Speedwell

Birdseye Speedwell named for St Veronica and sometimes called persian wildflower has bright blue flowers with dark blue veining, a white center and one of the four petals is always smaller. The ones in this picture are about one quarter inch across. It is often used as an ornamental ground cover and blooms early spring to early summer. I think it is beautiful.
