Greater Stitchwort


Photographed by Susan from Loire Valley Time Travel. https://tourtheloire.com

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.
