Ragged Robin    


As the name suggests, Ragged Robin is a ragged looking flower about 2.5 cms diameter. The five pink (sometimes white) petals are deeply divided into four parts. The leaves are narrow, lance-shaped and rough.

Ragged Robin is a common flower in wet, marshy areas and this one was found near our pond.
