Mighty day (and group) in Leitrim yesterday with fantastic learning, the nice weather done the trick too. Equisetum sylvaticum was a nice (but dangerous) roadside addition. And everyone admiring Bromus racemosus, spotted by Robert

Jedi Yellow Rattle in my mini-meadow. Definitely looks like Yoda but could also be an Angry Bird 🧐

Burnt orchid is a wholly inadequate name for this blistering raspberry and cream delight. Martin Down, Hampshire.

Yes Bugle Ajuga reptans. Definitely not an Ipomoea. I assume is an app for IDing American flowers so it will be quite useless in Britain & Ireland. Please correct me if there is a version of the app just for British & Irish species?
