49 inch dandelion to set new Guiness world record


Picture one of these flowers, but taller. Much taller. Much much taller. In fact, a whopping 49 inches tall, (but if you’ve read the title of this post then that number shouldn’t surprise you).

The Tripodi family, who currently live in New Hampshire, dug up this 49-inch tall giant dandelion from their pool deck after the oldest son spotted the record for ‘tallest dandelion’ currently at 39 inches. After the mother retrieved the tall plant, it was measured at 49 inches, and an application for a new world record was promptly sent to London.

Well, it’s interesting. Maybe not the most exciting piece of news, but at least it doesn’t involve any houses burning down.
