So, wanna hear our Science for the day? We found a mutant dandelion right outside our apartment. My dd, 10, dissected it and the thing had seven heads! The stem was extra thick. I put a few pics up on my blog if anyone wants to peep it out. I'd link directly, but I'm not sure if that's allowed. I put the link up in my profile. I'm such a geek, but I think its super cool, lol!!! Has anyone else seen something like this?

Yes, we found one in the yard last summer. It was very strange -- I had never seen anything like it! We brought it in and put it in a glass of water and took pictures too. Didn't dissect it, though. Good idea!

Off topic, but I noticed on my way to your blog that we have the same birthday, just 3 years apart!

Off topic, again, but I'm fairly sure you are allowed to link to your blog in your signature as long as your blog page has no advertising. (sigh) I miss the blog links!

Wow, cool! I wonder why it mutated into a seven-headed beast dandelion? That is the stuff myths are written about

Happy and in love with my family!

I have also seen this strange dandelion. It was last Thursday at the park with my friends. I saw it and said to them, "Hey guys, come look at this mutant dandelion!" And then we all took pictures. I have them posted on my facebook page. Would I be able to post a link?

There it is, anyway.


(I did just make this account to respond to the topic. I was wondering if I was the only one to discover one. I'm glad I'm not.)

Happy mutant dandelion searching!
