Question Plant ID

This is my first ever post and I am hoping someone can help. I live in a 300+Year old cottage with a busy garden that my wife and I have spent 3 years getting to be just right.
Each year brings something new and with the early warm weather this year is no exception. A plant has grown in our garden which we have no idea what it is.
I have attached a photograph for identification and have tried searching the BHS site and the Botanical garden site without success.
I apologise for the quality of the phot, but hope somone can help us.

Thanks in advance

It's a mullein ( verbascum sp) a biennial which seeds freely, grows as a rosette of leaves for a while then shhots up to 6ft to flower and die.
They are quite in keeping with a cottage garden and often pop up in places where we wouldn't plant them
