    It's a type of Plantain, more commonly found as a lawn weed.  Best removed before it seeds!

    That looks like a plantain jonesval245, Plantago major (had to look that up  :) )  I think.

    We used to pick those plantain seedheads for our budgie when I was small.

    We used to wrap the stalks round and fire them at each other @Dovefromabove !  Seems my childhood was maybe a bit more aggressive  :D
