Linaris vulgaris; common invasive weed.

(Zone 7a)

I don't see the spur that Linaria vulgaris has. Could this be Snapdragon, Antirrhinum sp.?

I agree with snapdragon, and the smell fits. Not all snapdragons have the smell. The presence of the smell was actually a criterion for my most recent purchase of a yellow snapdragon. I probably wouldn't have described it as marshmallow, but in retrospect, I can see that.

I'm with altagardener on Linaria vulgaris Flowers & leaves both match, and L. vulgaris occurs in the wild in Tehama county and would be a very good candidate for something that would pop up in a pasture.

Ecrane3, can you explain the lack of a spur? And judging by all the pots and associated gardening in the background, I suspect there is ample opportunity for a stray snapdragon seed to be introduced.

The flowers look too big to be Linaria vulgaris IMO, they have quite tiny flowers. These are much more snapdragon-like.

i cant tell, it looks like both of them.. maybe a closer image will help. ?

Ditto to a yellow-flowered cultivar of Antirrhinum majus. Kwanjin is right on it not being Common Toadflax.

Oops, I glanced at it quickly, but see now from the additional photos that it is indeed Antirrhinum majus. Sorry.
