A plant that is strange to us has appeared in our garden this year. It is now over 1m in height and has an abundance of blooms comprising a tiny yellow cluster within two pairs of leaves or petals, the larger pair being some 5 or 6 cm across. Can you identify it please? A photo is attached.
Thank you

it is caper spurge, one of the euphorbias. It is an annual [i think]. Seeds freely to.

Looks like a type of Euphorbia, careful the sap can be an irritant.
