[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Common toadflax is a spreading plant that forms patches of bright yellow spires throughout the summer in rough grassland, road verges, hedgebanks and disturbed ground. It has narrow grey-green leaves arranged in whorls alternating up the stem. The stems terminate in dense clusters of yellow spurred flowers similar in appearance to snapdragons. Common toadflax grows well on loose, well-drained soil in sun or partial shade. It can be grown in a lawn, meadow or flower border. Care should be taken when planting into a cultivated border as it can become quite invasive.

Just as common bird's foot trefoil is sometimes known as 'bacon and eggs', another name for this species is 'butter and eggs'.

Hi Anita,

Lovely colourful specimen of this flower, but what happened to the sharpness here?, this image is not up to your normal standard of quality, a slow shutter speed and no steady camera can only result in substandard sharpness, perhaps if i may say the use of a tripod would improve the sharpness immensely, however a splendid picture,
Best regards Anita and have a wonderful week,
