    I always found it difficult to ID.
    I simply lump them all in the daisy category.
    Kindly enlighten me to their IDs please.

    I've never seen a more beautiful picture of 2 common 'weeds' than that first one of yours. It almost makes me want to plant them on purpose.

    I love daisies - dandelions not so much except for dandelion wine!

    A great photo that means a lot to old coast kids!

    Daisy chains in the school yard before they « safetyfied” with chips of car tire rubber and slivery bark fr forest industry scraps

    And the puffy seeds fr dandelion we’d blow In to the wind (horrors!)

    And childhood game asking « do you like butter? » w buttercups — ironically I just paid someone to dig up recently - many number decades later! - a rampant weed in our moist farm pastures that no livestock would touch - they would luncheon the grass nearby but not buttercups.

    Random thoughts of what i now call weeds -

    it makes me think.

    Well, my definition of weeds are those you pay to get them rid of.
    If you pay to get them, they are flora.

    How it should be:

    If they're local native plants (which includes the above two, for me!) - they're wild flowers to be cherished

    If they're invasive alien plants (which includes the above two, for you!) - they're weeds
