Anyone know what this may be?? They are everywhere right now. They grow a single stem up about 8" (before being mowed) and the bloom closes around dusk. THX

It looks like what is known as Texas dandelion (but's it's not a true dandelion from what I understand.)

You're welcome. :)
I don't usually see my bees working them (although they are plentiful). What's your experience?

Well, after me opening my big mouth yesterday about my bees not working them, guess what I saw bees in this morning? :shock:
