This is common toadflax (Linaria vulgaris). It is flowering all over the place right now. Oh and it comes as a reminder that WFW13 has closed and your wildflower blips should be tagged WFW14 from now until the end of Saturday 15th Sept. WFW13 results will be out on Wednesday.
What else? Well, it's been an unexpectedly beautiful day. V, Jax, Hazel and I went to the Bridge for a snack lunch and then walked in the Twyford water meadows enjoying the sunshine. Couldn't ask for better Sunday fare.
A peaceful evening to you all xx
