So I have THIS blueish, fuzzy, prickly, grows-in-a-clump-habit THING growing in my yard. Sorry for the make-shift pic; I keep meaning to take a real one, but forget, so here's my drawing.
Probably a thistle of somekind. Not a bad drawing if that's what it is!
Thanks! I'll try to get a pic of it soon so I can get a definite ID...if it's a 'good' thistle, it can stay for the butterflies, otherwise, it's compost fodder.
That is SO funny! I have never seen anyone draw their plant!! I was ROFLMAO! But... trust me... I wasn't laughing at your artwork... just the presence of it :-)
Don't know if there are any "good" thistles. Most are non native weeds and will spread via seeds and rhizomes to cover your entire yard.

I believe this is what my hubby called a "bull" thistle. I had them last year in a patch along the road. I got my Roundup out fast and got rid of the dang stuff.
