    I took a picture today of a giant dandelion poofball. You know, the kind where you blow on it and all the little white things take off? Thing is, I don't remember ever seeing a giant dandelion flower there. What other plants have the giant poofballs?

    I'll try and post a picture if I can get my computer to work.

    My son and I found a giant "wishy" at June Lake once - it was a big as my hand.

    Can you post a pic of the foliage also? That will really help to identify it.
