White Dead-Nettle

White Dead-Nettle (Lamium album)

This one made me stop dead in my tracks. I was running with Maggie along the A590 (a very busy road) and noticed a small patch of these white flowers. At first I thought they were those dreaded stinging nettles but, no, these are different. I didn't touch so I don't know if they'd bite me. Odd that I've only seen them in this one place. Nothing else around except the road and a pasture for sheep (bordering on a landfill, I think).
