Found this on the road side in a dampish hollow

I know this plant as fox-and-cubs. It is rampant in our front garden. It's very distinctive, being the only bright orange dandelion-like flower. Presumably the flower is the fox and the dark buds are the cubs.
It is a garden escape, originating from Europe.
I once read that it is also known as Grim the Collier - no idea why!

I can see why its called fox-and-cubs, it really is very distinctive with its bright orange flowers, thats how I first spotted it as it shone out between the other speices.
Black hairs prominent on the buds. Miners had black faces when they surfaced.
