Purple Flower

This purple flower was lying amongst the weeds. No idea what it is as cannot find it in any books or the internet.

    I am pretty certain it is a Wahlenbergia, possibly Wahlenbergia rivularis. It is a genus I greatly like. Some of the desert species that appear ofter rain give me goose-flesh! Nice shot!

      Thanks Jon for your comment, I agree its probably Wahlenbergia, but I am not sure its W. rivularis. That has three prongs on the middle stem and this has two, a sort of aries look to it. Thanks for the interest though, appreciate it.
