Jane was walking up to the store this morning and spotted an Unidentified Flower Object (UFO). The two inch flower had poked it’s face through the leaves of one of our Lilac bushes.
But this little lady looked nothing like a lilac. First off, it was a pale yellow, and secondly, it was a single flower. The center puff of this bloom somewhat resembles a dandylion, and it is surrounded by daisy-like petals, which in turn rest on a fan of green spikes.
The leaves on the stem are long and pencil-thin, but hidden by the lilac leaves in this picture. We’re hoping someone out there might be able to identify just who this volunteer is.
It’s apparently an early bloomer, because by noon, it had closed up. Please comment if you have any idea just who this is.
