Default Plant identification needed, please.

Hello!

Out with my camera today, I noticed a small purple flower and took a few pictures of it.
They are he

http://www.flickr.com/photo_zoom.gne?id=22177947&size=m

Can someone identify it for me please so I can fill in a title for the picture?

I assume they are a fairly common wildflower as there were thousands of them.

I took them with a close up lens and as a rough guess at size, they were about 1.5 - 2cm
in diametre.

Location Leeds.

Thanks for any help :-)

Prunella vulgaris (Selfheal). Common in some types of moorland, and also
occurs in lawns and verges.

| Hi Paul,
|
| It looks like Prunella to me. Sorry, can't think of the species name, but
| Prunella should find it. It is a wild plant of grassland, which seems to
| fit in with your picture. I believe it was once used as a healing herb.

Excellent :-)

Thank you, Spider.

Many thanks,

Paul.
