Thyme-leaved speedwell (Veronica serpyllifolia)

This tiny speedwell pops up from time to time in The Metre and nearby. It is not readily able to compete with larger plants and often seems to favour bare ground, the sides of paths and so on.

The minute flowers are not very conspicuous, but have honey guides pointing to the central source of nectar, so perhaps they attract something.
