Yellow toadflax

Linaria vulgaris

Description:

Another, and more amusing name for this flower is butter and eggs. I'm not 100% sure about the ID as these flowers are more uniformally yellow whereas the toadflax in other pictures are whiter with a yellow/orange underlip. The genus is right though as these have the characteristic Linaria shape. These flowers require strong pollinators due to their closed up flowers (wiki).
