Spear Thistle (Cirsium vulgare)

What a prickly character this plant is as it inhabits any spare ground it finds. One fine day on a walk along our local lanes, tucked tight against the stone wall, was one with seed heads bursting into the wind. Reaching home, gloves and secateurs were quickly gathered up and returning I gently placed a bag over the dispersing seeds and managed to get it home in time!
