Description

Had today off, so I ran a few errands, and stopped by a park, of course. Was surprised (although not really) to see @bob777 at Southwest Nature Preserve! We walked around for a bit and spotted some more cool things. :)

The leaf shape reminds me of dandelion leaves, but the growth pattern is different.

Description

I think this is a young plant where the leaves haven't fully developed yet and there are no flowers yet. I based that on the appearance of the leaves with the white stripe down the middle and the way they halfway clasp the stem. But I may be wrong; if so, please correct.
