    • Similar, we think, Cindy, and thanks for the suggestion, but overall it’s thought that the flower is Doronicum orientale common name: Leopard’s Bane, which, according to Kew Gardens, is ‘an early-flowering, lemon-yellow daisy, with a single flowerhead on an upright stem, and soft, rounded leaves’.

      Maybe the mystery is resolved 😀

  6. Well now…the latest is that the friend who asked the question has had more input and believes the flower to be Inula, as Cindy said. Well done Cindy 🙂 Glad we can rely on the blogging world to come up with great suggestions 🙂 Details below:
    · Inula is a large genus of about 90 species of flowering plants in the family Asteraceae, native to Europe, Asia and Africa.

    · Higher classification: Asteraceae

    · Lower classifications: Inula britannica, Inula salicina, Elecampane, Inula ensifolia
