flower of Lactuca sativa


A flower not often seen in gardens. Lactuca sativa. Garden lettuce. A member of the sunflower family, Asteraceae!! In my parents’ garden, it is blooming by the wire edging fence with its stems winding through the trellis. I suppose some would say their lettuce has gotten away from them. But to a lovely effect.
