Thank you very much for viewing and the comments

There are so many flowers that look about the same. Is it Hawkweed?

(A curiosum: You know, when my parents went to primary school it was mandatory to pick 50 plant species, press them, put them in a herbarium and above all, learn their names. Otherwise you wouldn't be accepted in the next grade)

Thanks again

Torgny

Torgny, not sure about the full scientific name, but it looks like the hawkweed I found here: http://www.knowledgerush.com/kr/encyclopedia/Hawkweed/

And here is a picture from that site, which looks a lot like yours..
