A few other attractions included what I called a "Bonsai Salsify." The main crop had grown tall and gone to seed, and were mostly flattened by foot traffic and the above-mentioned machinery. But there are always a few trying to outlast the ravages of summer, and they have developed the abilty to bloom when only a few inches tall, much like the way dandelions and daisies respond to frequent mowings. I always admire survivors.
