Mutant Monster Dandelion!

I came across this 8-headed beast in my yard the other day, and I have to be honest - it scared me. It might be a little difficult to see in this particular shot, but you're looking at a super-wide dandelion flower stalk with a collection of at least 8 buds... all on a single stem!

Here's a better shot of just the stem (after I picked it):


I'd never seen such a thing. I wonder if this is the future of mutant yard weeds.

YIKES....how close to your garden was this monster of a weed? No wonder you were having issues with your lettuce growing! :0

What kind of chemicals are you spraying on your yard??! ;)

Apparently, I'm spraying the wrong kind, the mutation-inducing kind...

Yes yes... nature is a powerful thing. To those dandelions... I say off with their heads! :)
