This plant is growing on a wall and has a yellow flower, I would love to know what it's name is. This is my first post and I'm not sure if the picture is showing. Thanks Kurt

Welcome!

Your photo shows fine. Can you tell us where this plant is located? Are the leaves succulent?

It has leaves like my lavender does, but please don't take my opinion very seriously. I'm a first time gardener.

My best guesses at the moment are Aurinia saxatilis (syn. Alyssum saxatile):

Or a wallflower (Erysimum) some of which come in yellow. I'm not adding a picture because when I tried before I lost the post and had to start again.

Can you tell us roughly where you are located, gondo? Even country would help.

Sorry, I'm in Massachusetts, 20 miles south of Boston.
Thanks for the feedback, I think Sooby hit the nail on the head with Alyssum, that sounds familiar and looks like that when it flowers.
Thanks again
