I seem to be seeing a lot of toadflax in flower at the moment – both Purple and Ivy-leaved are flowering in the lane behind my house, the former adorning the edges, the latter sprouting from niches in the old brick walls, and I spotted a lot of the yellow-flowered Common toadflax in bloom along the coastal path yesterday.

And, during another of this week’s walks, along a route I’ve only visited once before, I found a new-to-me species – this is Pale toadflax (Linaria repens). (You can read more about it on the excellent First Nature website.)
