Tokk the sports pages over for John this morning and noticed some flowers growing along the outside of the garden wall. I wondered if it was the Purple Toadflax that he had been talking about Saturday
However after I cut a sprig and photographed it I could not find it in either my Octopus book or the Readers Digest wild flower book
I combined a couple of the pix and set it up in Flowers and the ID groups on Flickr.
Yes it is Purple Toadflax, Linaria purpurea, so I renamed all the JPG's and set them in my flower folder. Once again such a small flower but such a little beauty.
