Look at these cool plants I found growing along the road today! There were several of them that had that purple ring around the center. The stems are very prickly. I don't remember ever seeing them before and I thought they were quite unique.
*Thanks to Ione and Cherdecor who sent me tips on identifying this plant. Ione thought it may be a cuckleburr and Cheryl thought it was an Irish Thistle. I looked them both up and the Irish Thistle it is. It's nice to have a name to go with the plant!
