Another unidentified weed?

Hello, any ideas on what this is?

    Or something from a bird feeder? 
    I wouldn't eat it either - never a good idea when you don't know what it is!
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Looks like ragwort to me, or rather that is what it would be if it were in my garden.

    Kinda like some mad mutant sckrunckled up silverbeet?
  • Thanks all! I’d not seen a weed like it before either! There’s just two of them kicking about in the lawn a couple of metres away from each other?! Well at least I think they’re the same thing - photo of second suspect attached. I’m going to let one get a bit bigger and see if it becomes something more recognisable haha

    I think it looks ragwortoid
    In London. Keen but lazy.
  • Ooh yes - Skandi did say this already - had a look on Google images and reckon it must be. Don’t recall seeing it before, so yet another thing to add to my already quite extensive “it’s definitely a weed” list - at this stage it’d be easier for me to just remove the grass from the “lawn”  :D

    If your soil can grow lots of different weeds, your plants should do well too.
    The most serious gardening I do would seem very strange to an onlooker,for it involves hours of walking round in circles,apparently doing nothing. Helen Dillon.
