More help with ID please!

Use this forum for identification of plants and flowers found in the UK. To allow us to help provide accurate identification we need clear pictures of the whole plant, where it is growing and close up pictures of flowers, buds or seed heads if any available. It would also be useful to see pictures showing the leaf attached to the stem.

Hi TP,
The first one, with the pink flowers, is London Pride -- good to eat and here is our entry for it: https://www.thetortoisetable.org.uk/pla ... oyXtFTMI2E

Re the second one -- yellow flower -- I thought it looked like Cat's Ear, but looking at the leaves I don't think it is. There are so many plants that have similar flowers, I'm going to ask Lin to have a look and see what she thinks. It's really familiar to me but I can't place it.

Hi TP.
The yellow flowered one could be Mouse Ear Hawkweed (especially if it is hairy) or one of the many hawkweeds as some are seen here. https://www.thetortoisetable.org.uk/pla ... ozeoC_TWfB
It is a feed though so sticking with the ‘in moderation’ rule it will be fine.
