    Back from holiday on the south coast of Devon. The house we stayed in was less than 20m from the sea, with a front lawn stretching towards the sand and filled with hundreds of little yellow/orange flowers. Anyone know what they are? They seemed to love the exposed, salty position - the closer to the beach you got the more there were!
