I don't know how to distinguish salsify from goatsbeard ...

... other than by the colour of the petals, but goatsbeard is by far the commoner.

salsify

Thanks lavateraguy... I haven't seen salsify before but I'll keep an eye out for it in future.

Thanks

Thanks David... probably more luck than judgement. Although I like to think there's room for a little artistry on iSpot, alongside photos that are purely for identification purposes.
