have to agree with all of you guys and lady - this place is fast becoming a hellhole - I wonder what we will pass on to future generations - certainly 2% more built up area very soon plus a couple of derelict and abandoned golf courses after that....

so very sad

ononis

I always tend to overlook these little plants ...this is 3 to 6 inches high ...flower 8mm - 1 cm ...it looks like ononis and is sticky like big brother natrix - is it Ononis ornithopodioides perhaps ?
no other idea quite frankly
