Dandelion or Hawkweed?

Excluding the couple of buttercups!

Doesn't look like enough florets for dandelion, Douglas...

There's dozens of quite similar flowers in that Compositae group. Cat's ears and sow thistles, and hawkweeds, hawkbits and loads more. When I realised how many there were, I stopped bothering to try and identify them! 😜

Yes, it is easy to get confused with similar flowers. I think on hindsight that these flowers were more of the hawkweed variety. When I look at pics of dandelion they certainly seem to have a more concentrated bunch of florets.

I'd forgotten about this thread I've not received any alerts about it?
Anyways there's a lot of nice photos been taken.
A read somewhere fairly recent about a phone app that identifies flowers, google lens, it's ideal I've become a right budding horticulturists 😂 it's good, the app I mean!
Anyways more road side than river side, it's some sight a field of lavender on either side of the road road, I'm not in the habit of stopping to take photos but the road was empty and the view was stunning, unfortunately the phone camera doesn't do the view any justice.
