the flowers look like Conyza species.

the first pic basal leaves say family Compositae


I love the sweet scents wafting in the breeze. I stop to admire the vibrant colors of all living things. And people think me odd. Then ODD I am!!!

I know...
I was just tryin' to get something in
the ballpark, hopin' maybe it'll spark
someone else to know..

It's a relative of a weed we have here,
just can't place a name to it...

The leaves sorta, sorta remind me of chicory..
but the flower does't match...

It just looks so firmilar..
But just can't put my thumb on it..
