Cobwebby Thistle

On one of my hikes in the Point Reyes area, I came across this great dangerous looking and beautiful plant, full of spikes and webs. It is a wonderfully weird plant commonly called “cobweb thistle”,  a California native.  It’s spiny blooms are laced with fibers resembling cobwebs.

Title:  “Cobwebby Thistle”
(Cirsium occidentale)

Size: 19″ x 35″
