I found this
Bull Thistle growing out behind our house. This one was a tall one. We don't mow back there, it's behind our fence line so this one survived. We'll occassionally get them in the front yard and with mowing, you can't really get the base of them and the base is very painful if stepped on. It lies flat but has points as sharp as needles. They are a very invasive weed. We used to get alot of them in the pasture when we lived in Missouri. Although the flower is a pretty shade of purple, the weed is a nuisance!
