Another unidentified weed?

Hello, any ideas on what this is?

    Sorry cannot help..never seen anything like it before.
    Hope someone will know what it is.

  • Alien mutant kale?  Definitely not for eating!

    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....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    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.
    Looking forward to my new garden with clay soil here in South Notts.

    Gardening is so exciting I wet my plants.
