Common Centaury Centaurium erythraeaThis bright pink flower seeded itself in the gravel around our house in Connemara Co Galway. Its small flowers are a vivid pink with yellow centres, but they only open when the sun shines. Luckily we’ve had plenty of sunshine this summer. I have also seen Common Centaury growing on the grassy sand-dunes behind some of our Connemara beaches.
