And I Thought I Saw It All!

My husband and I burn our pastures in preparation for Summer. We get rid of all the leftover grasses (now 3 feet tall and very dry). Grass grows almost overnight in the field.

Today when I was out walking I noticed something sinister in the middle pasture.

2 feet of razor sharp spines running the length of the leaves with a yellow thistle like flower atop - nearly the size of a softball.

Seems it's called (of all things) Yellow Thistle.

Too dangerous for the goats.

It's gone tomorrow - today I am amazed.

Feed me Seymour!!
