Nice on, Tom.

I feel I have seen this before.
Tom Wilson: Yup, on Facebook - my phone shots often appear on Facebook first smile
... or is it? It's lovely, though!
Tom Wilson: Sheffield's boundary walls have all kinds of things growing in them smile

No one told it where it was meant to grow Tom!
Tom Wilson: Indeed - picks its own spot!
And yet....smile
Tom Wilson: Exactly.
Hahaha they are an old favourite. We have one that comes up every year which must have seeded itself from some we planted when our Helen I think it was grew some at school
Tom Wilson: They seem to be pretty sturdy plants.

I like the wall and the stones used in it.
Tom Wilson: Typical Sheffield boundary wall, Chad - probably local stone from the 19th century quarry that was located about 100 yards away from this wall and which is now covered by the Hallamshire Hospital smile
I call them snap dragons.
Tom Wilson: Yes, that's the common name here, too.
Nature will find almost anywhere to grow, this is a fine flower.
Tom Wilson: True enough, Brian.

A hardy grower. Takes the water and minerals right from the sandstone 'bricks'.
Nature finds it's way smile
