A busy day today. Maggie and I took a short walk through the cemetery where it was less wet. Although it didn't rain, it didn't dry out from yesterday, either. I'm bringing you a plant that always makes me smile.
It's alien- as in, not native to North America- but it has spread so completely from its European and Asian heritage, that it is found just about everywhere.
It is the common toadflax, Linaria vulgaris, usually known by the more descriptive name of butter-and-eggs.
The leaves are very narrow and "messy," but it fills in a space nicely. I'd put it in a garden, I like it so much. Hey, maybe I should!
The sunny colors have made this plant a favorite of mine since I was a child.
