Muddle-Up says:

Interesting one thrown up by Frank.....not literally.....Devonians seem to put the jam on the scone first, then top it with clotted cream.  Whereas in Cornwall the cream goes on first and is topped by the jam. The Tamar divides opinion as well as many other things, clearly! 


See original post

Think it's the other way around ........ https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/wordofmouth/poll/2010/may/20/cream-tea-scone-clotted-cream

No I didn't think it was nyger either.


I think you're right with Common Fleabane  - the pics on here are spot on

Thanks

This 'appeared' and grew in a bucket of old cactus compost stuck in a quiet corner - I thin it only appeared this spring but it could have been there last year too, so it could be an annual or a biennial.  I've left it alone out of curiosity as I didn't recognise it.  Today it has flowers appearing.  


The leaves are quite pungent if you squeeze them.  


Stem and leaves slightly fuzzy.
