Boats everywhere

There's been a noticeable increase in the numbers of boats about today.  In fact, for the first time this year we had to queue to go across the aqueducts and through the tunnels and ended up as one of a convoy of 5 boats. We're now back at Chirk Bank, although after being bothered by a lout last week, we've moored on the other side of the bridge with 2 other boats. 

As I was walking through the "narrows" there were quite a few of these small blue flowers just starting to grow in the grass verge.  I've looked both on-line and in my Observers wild flower book but can't identify it.  Can anyone help?  They were about 6inches tall.

the "narrows"- only wide enough for one boat
