I saw this flower as I was walking along the pavement. It was so pretty, and delicate looking. I am certain it is an escapee from a garden, and not a wildflower. If you know what it is, please tell me.

I always enjoy seeing nature encroaching into mankind's concrete jungle.

@fitheach hmm, looks like some sort of bell flower (Campanula) to me?

@fitheach @daniel_bohrer Probably Campanula persicifolia to be exact.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campanul

Hard to say for sure though, what with there being over 500 species. If you're not in its natural habitat, it may well be a cultural plant, i.e. has spread along with humans.

@Gnomeshatecheese
Not sure that is exactly the flower I photographed, but certainly close.

Of course, I now realise I photographed a close relative, just over a week ago, the Scottish Bluebell:
