Can't save photos for some reason.

can you post a photo using the camera icon on the right hand side of the tool bar?
For some reason photos from my mobile (Microsoft Lumia) won't open .
are you good at description? leaf shape, flower colour, number of petals, type of flower, plants size, habitat and anything else you can think of
The suspense is killing me!
The plant has lance-like leaves at the base with a single stem about 50cm high. The flower is a cluster of purplish buds with a central red multi-petalled flower. It's growing in my front garden which is south facing.
Red flax, sometimes used in bird seed. Linux grandiflorum or linum coccineum.
Photo uploaded at last! Thanks fidgetbones but not red flax. I should have said that the leaves and stem are furry. The flower gets more orange as it opens.
Could it be Fox-and-Cubs ? (Pilosella aurantiaca) ?
Flowers a bit like dandelions but orange?
Orange hawkweed (Hieracium aurantiacum)
