Cretanweed

Thank you, Jerry S., for the name of this plant. I was getting SO frustrated because I could NOT identify what I thought was a dandelion species. Nope. It's cretanweed (Hedypnois cretica), an introduced species from the Mediterranean. I'd noticed it last year in the neighborhood and had secretly hoped we'd get some in the Meadow. Well, we did. And now that I know what it is, I shouldn't have wished for it. But at least it's not listed on the Texas Invasives list. Still, I guess I'd better go pull it up.....
