A Very Dandy Dandelion

Found this photo on Twitter and I’m amazed at the determination of the dandelion.

“Botanical tenacity last week in the gardens! A pilon at the edge of a path ended up on top of a dandelion. Remarkably, the plant produced a 60cm tall stem to get its flower through the opening!” –Kevin Kavanagh, South Coast Gardens, Norfolk, Ontario, Canada
