I'm fairly sure they are called railway lines :roll:

They look very like what I think of as Goat's Beard but there are lots of these dandy liony things about so I'll defer to the experts :D

SWMBO (who knows about such things) has determined it to be Tragopogon pratensis. Which is the smart-arse way of saying that Andy is correct- Goatsbeard.
'til a voice as bad as conscience,
rang interminable changes,
on an everlasting whisper,
day and night repeated so-
"Something hidden, go and find it,
Go and look beyond the ranges,
Something lost beyond the ranges,
Lost and waiting for you,
Go."

That's what I thought :)

Thank your good lady for that I hate having images that don't have the right information attached. It has another name I found 'Jack-Go-To-Bed-At-Noon' because the flowers open only before 1PM :)
