Her name was Veronica

You've probably seen this little blue flower before, but odds are you haven't really noticed it. Catskills Photography gets a closer look at what looks to us like Veronica persica, also known as bird's eye or Persian speedwell. This little blue flower is an import from Asia, now common throughout North America, but rarely planted on purpose. It's blooming now: Keep an eye out for its tiny blue flowers, just under a centimeter across, in lawns and meadows.
