What Are These?

What are these?
Walking alongside the canal near Sun Trevor last week Liz and I came across these lovely blue flowers. They're only about four inches tall and they aren't bluebells. Anyone any ideas?


' Number 82'
There's lots of sheep and lambs in the fields next to the canal- all marked so they can't lose each other. It's a very noisy time with the mums and youngsters calling each other too. Spring is certainly here.

I think they are the native British Bluebells which look rather smaller and less impressive than their imported relations.

Anne is correct, see website.
