Flowers of Brittany

These three pictures are of flowers that insisted on growing out of walls - everywhere.  From the side of the quay to house walls, to old stone fencing between fields.  The top one is false valerian, then daisies on the left and I have no idea on the right.

All along the fields the floxgloves were in bloom.

These purple flowers were also everywhere to be seen in the rocks.

Many of the houses were built right to the edge of the road and these little clusters grew right at the base of the houses providing some colour between the pavement and the cream or stone colour of the house.

The area around the Pointe du Raz was covered in low growing gorse and heather.  
If you have recognised some of these flowers please let me know their names by leaving a comment.
