The plants name derives from the French for 'thought' and it was traditionally the plant of rememberance and love. it used to be known as 'Heartsease', as in Shakespeare's 'A mid Summer Night's Dream', -where it is used to make Titania fall in love. It grows mainly on agricultural ground and flowers from April - July. This picture was taken in the fields at Odell, Bedfordshire - 4th June 2006.
