Since I’ve been very young I’ve been fascinated by these wonderful little flowers (Ivy-leaved Toadflax, or Cymbalaria muralis in Latin). They can grow in the tiniest cracks on walls, are wonderfully intricate yet very small, and are very vibrantly coloured. These flowers now grow wild around Ireland, but they are not native, they were introduced into Gardens and escaped from there into the wild.
