Even the weeds are beautiful
Last weekend I walked around Purple Ranch looking for interesting shots. I found myself shooting as many what we call weeds as I was things we intended to grow. We call this a thistle. Does anyone know it's true name? Until next time. Lavender Up!

I don't know the real name but my mom always called the yellow tops.I have always thought they were wonderful.They are some type of wild daisy.
Thanks for the info.
I am probably wrong but those flowers are very similar to the Ragwort plant; deadly poisen to all things! Here in the UK we are under legal obligation to dig and burn it. Hope my identification is wrong but it may be worth trying to get a formal identification.
They sure are pretty to look at. Much different than the plant we call thistle here in Maine. Good luck identifying.
They look like ragwort to me. If so be prepared for many, many caterpillars (if you are in U.K. anyway). There is a particular red and black moth (it's beautiful) which loves this plant and lays thousands of eggs on them. If I'm correct about the plant and you get caterpillars save a few and wait for them to hatch. You will have a lovely surprise.
I did't know that this plant was poisonous until I just read it here. I've just looked it up on Google and many sites state that it is poisonous to horses.
