Alison Quill (who lives not far from where this photograph was taken) writes: :

"We have this growing in our garden, (south slopes of Mendip, Draycott) like a weed, spreads easily, likes life under garden tree. The most brilliant blue flower I have seen, little hard white seeds and I've been through every book/site to identify it, to no avail. Thanks."
