I believe this is a scotch thistle just by how large the leaves are. These thistles get huge!

It is hard to tell without flowering, I will go back later and see how they start looking. I am starting to lean towards Bull Thistle.

I suspect a Scotch Thistle, but not sure. http://www.cwma.org/scotchthistle.html

Neat looking plant! Maybe a thistle of some kind?
