A Look Back to Summer

I found some interesting information on the thistle while looking it up to identify.  First, I didn't know there were as many different types of thistle.  Some, such as the Canada thistle are listed on the USDA's National Invasive Species  List, yet other types such as the milk thistle are used for the treatment of liver disease, some cancers, and insulin production.
I believe this specimen is the Canada thistle.
