Yellow toadflax 

Linaria vulgaris this lovely wild flower has naturalised at the bottom of my somewhat

unkempt garden! Officially known by the familiar names -
common yellow toadflax - butter and eggs

 on Wikipedia and RHS.org

in passing we've also, perhaps rudely, refered to it as
a pretty yellow spiked flower growing wild!  Meadow bunny mouths, miniature antirrhinum or snapdragon

Summer time, and one of the many visits madeby this & other fuzzy pollinators

Common yellow toadflax and a pollinator visit during the summer

Self sown, this naturalised clump of toadflax lives happily, undisturbed and much admired

Autumn, and as the idiom would express .. gone to seed!
