I recently had a contest here to see who could come closest to counting the number of dandelions I picked last week. The underlying intent of the post was to also to poke a little fun at our recent municipal election. People were more interested in the dandelions. Nan Mundy guessed there were 390 dandelions in the bag. That was the closest guess to the actual number I counted when I picked them: 417 - buds, blossoms, and spent blossoms.
