Purple flower with thorny stems. The base of the plant is leafy.
It is a milk thistle. Thank you. I have about a million growing around my house. Very pretty for a weed of sorts.
I was gonna say Canadian Thistle. First met it at my Uncles Farm in Keenesburg Colorado when I was a Kid. Have it here in Redding California in my front yard, just one. Beautiful picture.
Definitely a type of thistle. Milk thistle?
