Is this shepherds purse? I used the google plant identification and it says it is but I know it’s not always right and I don’t wanna risk it, I’m absolutely horrible at identifying plants so I’m asking here ? it’s just a piece of it as I’ve already cut all the leaves and washed it. I also think it could be dandelion leaves but I don’t know because here in the uk we haven’t had any dandelions bloom yet, so It could be the start of a dandelion as when I picked it up it did look similar to the dandelion plantimage.jpg

Hint if you go out for a walk on a sunny day even in winter you will see the yellow flowers in abundance in a weedy area. I am in the UK and have managed to get dandelions throughout winter. Hope you find them.

Don't feel bad...I'm horrible at ID'ing too. I can look at a picture and then a weed and I still have no idea if they're the same. They all look alike to me. Well, I can usually tell dandelion or mustard, but that's it. ?
