Wonderful shots again.
Last year you had posted same plant which I had included on the Indiantreepix blog on Polygalaceae.
The characteristic petals just look marvelous esp. the lowermost petal which is boat shaped or saucer shaped -keel with a fringed crest .
What I could gather from species name......................arvensis = from Latin meaning fields,
As a species name, means “found in cultivated fields” (as either a crop or a weed).
Can you recollect the habitat of the plant you observed? Please comment.
