As a small child, I lived in Newnan, Georgia. I remember this plant being a thing to watch for in my yard as well as the scorpions and fire ants. Years later I know what it looks like and here it is suddenly in NC. I’ve been living here for 14 years and this is the first time i’ve seen it in this state so far north. I’ve been saying the weather feels more like Georgia this year. haha

    Is it some kind of thistle?

    This looks like a first year plant of field thistle (Cirsium discolor).
