We are still living a restricted life because of the coronavirus pandemic. We haven’t ventured far, relying on shorter walks near home, as we have done for the last three months. It is a pleasing experience to discover so many new plants on my daily excursions, and observe the changes that take place so rapidly as the seasons change from spring to summer. I saw these seed heads the other day. They are much larger than the common dandelion clock, and their structure is noticeably different too. There were quite a few in among the wild grasses but I had not previously seen the small yellow flowers that gave rise to them. They are the fruits of Goat’s-beard (Tragopogon pratensis).
