I came across this weed during my walk this morning. I believe it is called a Canada Thistle. The flower is about the size of my thumbnail. The stem has thorns and is very sharp in sections.

Beautiful and painterly shot, Glenn. I hope that you uprooted it after photographing it, because it is considered to be a noxious, invasive species in 43 states!:eek:
Thanks Eric...I uprooted it before photographing it! I didn't realize it was an invasive species...but it appears to be a losing battle. There was an endless supply of it.
Very nice Glenn..I could see this as a botanical poster.
Thank you, John
