Another two for identification, please. Wild flowers in my garden and I love them. Is the yellow flower a type of buttercup? Many thanks. x

Top one is Pilosella aurantiaca (fox-and-cubs, orange hawkweed, but don't know the second one.

The hawkweed is very invasive!

The yellow one is also a hawkweed.

The yellow one could be Mouse-ear Hawkweed, Pilosella officinarum, which has leaves with long white hairs. Or lots of other dandelion-type species!

It would help with the second one to see a pic of the whole plant. There are so many of these and its hard to learn which is which.

If is is mouse eared there should be red stripes on the back of the petals.

Sorry for my late 'thank you' for identifying the plants. I've been ill recently and this is the first time I've felt well. Thank you all for the ID's. xx
