Flowering in November

I've just seen Ranunculus bulbosus (or at least a buttercup with reflexed sepals) in flower.

I'm guessing these

I'm guessing these self-seeded recently but thought it was Spring not Autumn.

Cosmos ...

... is (summer to) autumn-flowering.

There are emphemerals like groundsel that can flower at any time of year, and coltsfoot and butterbur are spring-flowering (and the main flush of dandelion flowers also occurs in the spring), but the majority of daisies flower in late summer and autumn.
