8 foot x 7 foot...

... and covered in prickles and white hairs. This magnificent Cotton Thistle is dwarfing all around it in a Banstead farm field. A Triffid if ever there was one.

Steve, I repeat what I have said elsewhere :-), a fabulous plant. It even got me out of blog hibernation a few weeks back and that was before it flowered!! I do wonder what is going to happen with those fields though. They sprayed the cereal crop with (ripening) herbicide a couple of weeks ago but diodn't stray!
