Not sure what this little gem is called, but just caught a glimpse of it when leaving Island Mere.
It's very common around wetlands, but a bit late in the season to still be flowering
Looked so delicate and the only one there so left it be :-)
This is water mint. If you'd crushed the leaves you'd have instantly recognised the smell.
