June 27, 2020: A Giant Dandelion?

It's actually a Tragopogon, also known as Salsify or Goatsbeard and is in the Sunflower family.  Salsify's beautifully symmetrical flower head gives way to a huge, puffy silver/white seed head. "Tragos" is Greek for "goat" and "pogon" for "beard", thus the common name, "Goat’s Beard".  (Kevin Kane, 6/27/20)
