Tragopogon pratensis

For ages I never saw this native perennial in flower and couldn’t understand why. Anyway it turns out that it only opens in the morning and as I tend to get up late I’d never been around when it was noticeable. The seedhead on the other hand is easy to spot looking like a massive dandelion clock.
