What is this wild flower please?
One of the perennial Geraniums , or Cranesbills.
It may be Dove's Foot Cranesbill but the flowers are very pale pink to white,but that may be just fading?
I'd say it's Geranium pyrenaicum.
Geranium pyrenaicum does have a white form but the leaves are wrong.
Maybe a form of G.maculatum 'album' ??
What about G. molle?
Two questions - how long are the individual petals (base to tip), and is it annual or perennial?
I think the petals were about 1cm long.Don't know if it is annual or perennial.It was growing in a patch of mowed grass.It was the leaves that I noticed as they seemed completely round (but are actually lobed).
Geranium molle, the Dove's-foot Crane's-bill is looking the most likely contender.
Shall have to go and have another look at the plant in situ.
Measure the petals accurately, and see how firmly rooted it is and if there is any kind of basal rosette.
It definitely looks like Dove's foot cranesbill, Geranium Molle. The height can vary due to growing conditions. They can be pale pink and fading to almost white.
