Red campion

 
Just beginning to come out into flower as a follow on to the bluebells, here is the red campion.  The flowers are not red but pink and a bit brighter than my photograph shows.
 
When the flowers are over the seed capsule is like a tiny urn full of dark brown seeds, which are scattered by the wind or anything that brushes past.
