On the doorstep in Bergen op Zoom this nice bunch of flowers was growing. As far as I can find out it is the Hypochaeris radicata.

The suggestion is that it is hieracium in latin.
There are lots of different little yellow flowers wich all look the same at the first view.
When you look closer to the flowers, the stem and the leafs you see the difference.

Both hieracium and dandelion (taraxacum in latin) belong to the same family, asteraceae.

Hi Hendrik. I like the city flower story behind this image. I would cut the brick wall out of the left and introduce brick wall space to the right (if there was some to introduce), placing the flowers off-center. Nice one, TFS :)

Hi there Hendrik, I know them as Dandelion, a very popular plant for the bees and insects. And they can grow anywhere - as your photo shows. Well captured.

These flowers look like dandelions, but they are different. They are called fibbla in Swedish (hieracium in latin) and there are many different kinds of this flower, some tiny and some almost as big as dandelions. My daughter became very angry at these fibbla-flowers, when she was little, because she cound not blow their seeds away, which is easy with dandelions. But both hieracium and dandelion (taraxacum in latin) belong to the same family, asteraceae. I just checked it up! Very nice picture!
