Salsify, a.k.a. Goatsbeard

Salsify may be the process by which delicious salsa is made, or it may be what happens to someone that learns how to dance the salsa.  However, in the context of this photo, salsify refers to the name of what is commonly thought of as a giant dandelion.  Also known as goatsbeard, this flower does look similar to a dandelion, but it is certainly larger, as the seedhead can be up to 4 inches across.  Heather took this photo of a salsify that was just waiting for a good wind to come along and help disperse some seeds.
