    A neighbour sent me this photo of a weed she is seeing more and more of in her garden as I am in mine.

    We've never seen it in bloom but wonder if anyone might recognize it at this young stage.

    There is definitely a strong similarity between our new weed and Senecio sylvaticus. Interesting, that when I looked at the distribution map on the World flora:Identify site, it shows only a few IDs for this area compared to dozens in Europe. Maybe its yet another newcomer trying to get its foot in the door.
