Ajuga Reptans**

Another flower from the meadows. I thought this looks really cute from above like a little fireweel in lilac...
Btw - also a very good support for bees and it is a healing herb.

"Ajuga reptans" (Lamiaceae)
bugle, Günsel

Love this flower...but I'm a little surprised at the color combo nature has chosen...the purple is wonderful but the center of the flower is unusual...but only in my opinion...:0)

Cheers

Haha Heather - I think I tricked you here - LOL - it's the way I photographed it - if you look it up on the internet you will see that these are multiple little blooms around one stem...
