    Hello everyone,
    Does anyone know what’s this orange flower is growing in my driveway? Is it safe to feed? And is the flower of a daisy safe to feed occasionally? View attachment 274939

    The forum seems to be acting up. I saw the thumbnail for your picture but when I tried to enlarge it I'm getting an error message. So I can't see your picture.

    I think daisy's are a "do not feed" on the Tortoisetable

    Does the orange flower have an upright, hairy stem? I found one that looks similar - Iceland poppy.

    Slightly hairy, yes. It’s never been big. That looks to be it! Strange to have in in the middle of my paved driveway lol. I heard Daisy’s leaves are bad but the flower itself is harmless. I think I’ll just opt out of the daisy. Thank you everyone.
