One of the things I’ve learned since starting this blog is that I’ve applied the term dandelion rather loosely. There is a flower known as a dandelion but every yellow-topped weed sometimes gets the same label. The tendrils on top are quite interesting.
This appears to be a perennial sowthistle. Or it could be a dandelion! The point being, my inexactness aside, that just because something looks like one plant, it may be something else. I need to do a better job of recording more of the plant so that identification is easier!
