Salsify seedhead

By oldgreyheron      
At around 8 cm in diameter these golden dandelion-like seedheads had me baffled at Helmsley Walled Garden. Google helped me out though. It's a pity you cannot feel the delicate texture too, they were a delight!

Well captured, Mike. The wild salsify we have growing here produces seedheads from 15-20 cms in diameter Smile Carol
