Veronica anagallis-aquatica Blue water Speedwell
This water speedwell can grow to an height of 1.2 metres tall and flowers from April to September. It likes running water or pools. This one was found in a shallow stream. It is present in all of Europe. It was very difficult to get a decent photograph due to the strong wind. The flowers are very tiny and delicate, 5-10mm in diameter.

It flowers from May to August and is found amongst oak woodlands. These plants were found on a high bank, and we were unable to get closer for a better photograph.
