When you find out, let me know! I have many images of this (only one posted on RB)
Yes I will let you know. My memory is getting worse as I once new the name of it, but I jsut can not remember it. Hopefully another RB member can help me out
I have no idea, but it is a nice shot!!
Thank you Marvin. I know but can not recall it, it has been driving me crazy….lol
I just know them as a type of thistle! I love them but they dont grow up here in Mn. Last time I was in Ohio I clipped me a bunch and brought them home! Beautiful clear capture!
IT grew in/on a river embankment. I am not sure what it is.
Boy, do I know what you mean about diminishing memory!!
I think it is called a Wild Teasel (Dipsacus fullonum). The sap is rich in tanin and was used for medicinal purposes in the day of old. Allegedly it was also used by the clothing industry to tease out the nap of newly woven cloth, but what do I know…lol (I just goggled that …lol)
Surely not you too, must be something in the water….lol
Thank you very much
LOL…Love the title!!! Amen sista friend!!! Beautiful image also!!! We have those here and I can not remember the name either LOL :o)
Barry gave me a clue and I also googled it. It is called a Wild Teasel (disacus follonum). Gald you liked the title – high Five and all that..lol
