Greater Stitchwort

Photographed by Susan from Loire Valley Time Travel.

This is one of the prettiest and most widespread of European wild flowers. It is called Greater Stitchwort Stellaria holostea (Fr. Stellaire holostée) and I photographed these on the Swiss - Italian border in the Alps at around 2500 metres above sea level. I could equally have photographed them in my orchard, at less than 100 metres above sea level.
