    To help in recognition perhaps, since it is a "small flower", it would have been appropriate to photograph it more in the foreground.
    Sorry if I got a detail from your photo.

    The first is a Gentinaella, most likely Gentianella amarella. The second is definitely something fabaceous, maybe Astragalus or Hedysarum. A field guide with colour photographs would be easier to narrow this down than the ink sketches in the Illustrated Flora, but I am not in the office and have no access.

    Thank you, Daniel, I am so happy with the answer Gentianella amarella. What a pity, it is not open yet:(
