By the way on things like this, you can search using an image on google and it will let you find similar images. On a flower this would let you know what it was pretty quick as you can just follow the images to the pages they're on and make a quick id.

You have to be on google image search before you drag and drop by the way. Just click "images" on the main google page.

Thank you, this is a good idea.

I did not know you could search like that on Google.

A very useful resource for identifying living things, fossils etc is the Natural History Museum in London.

You can make an appointment to take samples there, or use their free identification forums.

It is a viola. Some of the small violas are also called "Johnny jump-ups".

Thank you so much.

I will now carefully remove the flower to a 'safer' place, it is on a path!

+1 to viola.
They come in many shades and patterns but the petal arrangement and rays radiating from the centre are the giveaways.
