Despite the cool weather, I have noticed several of these thistle plants popping up in my yard! I am not a big believer in herbicides, but I may have to use some this year.

It definitely would be a pain to do so, but less of a pain than it would be to go barefoot in the yard!

I suppose so...don't tell some of my friends on Facebook, but I use herbicides when needed too :-o

They look beautifully devilish. Cool. Are they some sort of Thistle?

We've got snow again today. No sign of Spring anytime soon.

I think some birds use the thistle (after it dries on the stalk) for neswting material. Maybe just don't go barefoot in the yard.
