From the Shropshire Hills yesterday? (1 Viewer)

Was wondering what this first image was?
Growing on a NEast facing rock, thought it looked a bit like Pennywort?

Also the second image reminded me of a tiny Forget-me-not?

Cheers πŸ‘

1. A baby navelwort. Common on wooded Shropshire rocks. It's in flower now, though yours has only got last year's.
2. Yes, a forget-me-not.

Although its size can’t be easily scaled, the flower did look somewhat diminutive compared to the regular FMN. πŸ‘

There are numerous species of forget-me-not that are native to the UK. The one most often seen in gardens is Wood Forget-me-not & its cultivars which are relatively large & showy. The smallest flowers are the Early FGN which are even tinier than yours here. Given flower size & habitat this is likely to be either Tufted or Creeping Forget-me-not.
