Groundsel - Senecio vulgaris

I'd never even noticed groundsel before, i thought it was just a strange looking ragwort with unopened flowers. But it's a beautiful little plant. This is a picture of its seed heads. The flowers are yellow and look like a daisy with all the white petals pulled out. Just little yellow bumps in dense clusters at the top of the stem. You might be able to make out some of these flowers, out of focus, in the background of the picture.
