A flower, it's not. A non-native weed ... thistle.

It's only redeeming quality is that its seeds are a favorite of finches.

They seem to find their way into my photos, though.

(There's another thread around somewhere with a few more, but I can't find it.)

Thanks NS!,

I am not a flower expert, but for being weed, this is a very intriguing plant, I had not seen it before. I sort a run into it when went looking for a ball my daughter had kicked in there.

From your link, I think this particular one, is the the "Cotton Thistle" (Onopordum acanthium ). One thing I noticed, bees love this plant!

My photos were taken with a Nokia N8 set for Close-up and Vivid modes.

Regards!

Your phone does a nice job with the purple of the bloom. It's a portion of the spectrum some cameras have a difficult time doing well ... mine included.
