Thistles are one of the most familiar types of weeds because of the spines on their weeds and flower heads. There are about 200 species in the world, mainly in the Northern Hemisphere.The thistles are members of the Daisy family-Compositae. The top pic is a Star thistle-also known as Common or Bull Thistle.The bottom pic is a Sow Thistle.Just another weed no one really lookin’ at but me.These two weeds were found at the corner of mine and my neighbors’s yards. By the way the vine you see is a honey vine milk weed getting a start on the season.More to come on that beautiful smelling weed.All pic by td-thanks to ‘Weeds”-a Golden Book for help.
