Premature bud

Although it is only about one centimetre tall, the seedling that I think may be groundsel, has produced a flower bud. This is very fast work for something that only germinated on 1 February this year, 87 days ago. It remains to be seen whether the plant will grow taller or will call it a day once seed is set.

The black-tipped outer bracts are characteristic of groundsel, so it looks as though my early determination was right.
