It is the blue flower I was wanting to be identified - is it flax? The group of people
I was with hadn't got a clue. Sorry the blue flower isn't very clear but I only took the picture because I thought it looked pretty.
Think it's rosebay willowherb. Does look pretty at the roadside.
Oops you knew that. Can't make out the blue one, sorry.
Hard to pick out but I think chicory is most likely
Bekkie and Nut - I think you are right. I have just looked at pictures of flax and chicory to compare and the flower is more like chicory. It was in a farmers field and apparently it is grown as fodder for animals. Thank you.
If it's as tall as rosebay WH it's chicory. flax is much shorter
