Can anyone identify this plant for me.Thanks in advance :)




I think I need to see the flower open , may be a poppy of some sort?

It is a hawkweed type of plant. A weed similar to a large dandelion.

Think this is one of my favourite wild flowers, Jack-go-to-bed-at-noon. It is so pretty, it will self set but not as bad as dandelions can do. It has a clock seed head, love them. :O)The flower opens up during the morning and closes up during the afternoon, hence the name. Very interesting how it does it. Yellow flowers with a green spiky cuff, lovely. :O)
