Western goatsbeard, Yellow Salsify, or Western Salsify. Tragopogon dubius
Farm Road 826, Texas
This is a composition dreamed up for me to snap by my brother, and that's his hand.
Trying to find this plant's name before blogging it (google search "like a huge dandelion" worked), I discovered this is apparently a world-wide wild plant.
Its skeleton is lovely and I used some in arrangements this winter. Only at that time, I didn't know how to identify it based on its dried, petalless, seedless self.
