Secret Garden Wild Flowers



We think its Toadflax or wild snapdragons, Three seperate colours cream and yellow, purple and lilac, and lime green,yellow and peach. From Morroco to Harrogate..
Flowering away happily in the long grass by the paths edge.

This was the first flower I came across next to the mulched path..It is a Prunella Vulgaris or Heal All!

Not sure what the top three are, but I'm pretty sure that the last one is heal-all.

The top three look a bit like wild snapdragons (toadflax?). The third photo looks most like the wild snapdragon I know.

Hi Sylvana,Its good to hear from you on my comments.I will look up the Heal all,
Hi Karen, they are Snapdragon-ish in colours and the candy scent that each one had.I was down on my knees photographing in the wet grass.

Sylvana it is a heal all.Is it a weed in America too?Prunella Vulgaris...
Karen I think you are right from the photos I have seen it is a toadflax or wild snapdragon.Most of the pictures were of yellow snapdragons but there are more coloured ones originally from Morrocco but naturalised in Europe now.They are unusual though :)
