Mystery Wildflower

misssherry(Z8/9SE MS)March 19, 2009

There's some type of ?aster that popped up in an open area on the edge of my wooded property - it's blooming now. I've never seen a daisy type yellow flower with leaves like this -

Here's a picture of the flowers \- they've about bloomed out now \- Anybody know what this is?

Some type of Senecio? Maybe Senecio glabellus?

I looked up senecio glabellus, and that's it, Rhonda! Not only are the flowers the same as the pictures on the internet, the leaves are too, which is the key. Thanks so much for the ID - I think it's a pretty little plant.
And thanks for the input cjbspokane!
