The flower looks very much like a dandelion but the leaves are oval hairy and rounded not toothed like dandelion.




i think its either "rough hawkbit-Leontatodon hispidus or Mouse-ear hawkweed-Pilosella officinarum

but then im only learning

It could be something from the hieracium family from the flowers

I agree with Andrewr, and also suggest it could be Hieracium lanatum, judging by the size and 'wooliness' of the leaves.
