    Looks like a rock or something else lodged into a windshield.

    We have a winner!

    I "won" that one yesterday!
    It's a weed.
    After all...a weed is a weed is a weed, and dandilions are the king of all
    What gives?

    Just the production instructions.

    Mark² Guest It isn't.
    The seeds are attached to the cotton-like floaters...some of which are
    attached here.
    You're looking at the top end of the plant where the seeds emerge.

    You're looking at a weed.

    dandy lion. It starts of yellow then looks like it dies and turns to this
    cottony stuff that floats away.

    And I thought a dandylion was an overdressed British rugby team member.

    One entry found for dandelion.
    Main Entry: dan·de·li·on
    Pronunciation: 'dan-d&-"lI-&n, -dE-
    Function: noun
    Etymology: Middle French dent de lion, literally, lion's tooth
    : any of a genus (Taraxacum) of yellow-flowered composite plants;
    especially : an herb (T. officinale) sometimes grown as a potherb and
    nearly cosmopolitan as a weed

    They are very common here. Oddly enough, despite the French etymology,
    they are not called 'dent de lion' here (Quebec), but "pis en lis".

    "pis en lit", I believe. Have you ever drunk dandelion tea before bed?
    If you did, you'd know why...

    Or "pissenlit".

    Dandelion wine is much nicer than dandelion tea. And you can drink it
    before bed :)
