ID please.....noticed this quite attractive flower which just seems to have appeared in the grass verge at the front of the house, never seen it before. The leaves are a bit hairy.

The second ID please is a weed that just grows everywhere in my garden and I would like to know its name.

First one is Fox and cubs or Hieracium

The second is creeping jenny or lysemachia nummularia

I know the first one as hawkweed - it spreads like crazy!

It is an orange hawkweed too and yes, it spreads like mad either by seed or runners.

Very pretty flower though

Must be a present from the birds......Don`t mind weeds like that, in fact reluctant to cut the grass now, but hopefully it will come back.

Don't worry, it will come back and so will all its brothers. It comes back even when well watered with weed killer!

Andrea I'd haul this out, pretty as it is... a total thug!

Thanks MG, I think I best do that to avoid being over-run.

You'll definitely over run unless you remove... Bulba, accidentally. introduced to our last garden. It is still rampaging around totally our of control!

Thanks for posting that first pic, Andrea, I just saw some in my garden yesterday & was wondering the same thing.
