Does anyone know what type of plant this is. 3 petal blue flower and there's loads in my garden.




Not to sure a type of wildflower perhaps.

When we were on holiday in Tuscany a few weeks back I came across a similar flower.

What gives it away is the way the seeds are nestled in the old flower head.
