It is a Teasels Honeysuckle family. The Cut-leaf Teasel has white flower where as the Fullers Teasel has a lavender flower.

I used a bing tool to identify a plant using your image, which linked to a wikipedia article on what appears to be the plant in your photo.

"Dipsacus laciniatus is a species of flowering plant in the honeysuckle family known by the common name cutleaf teasel. It is native to Europe and Asia. It is present in North America as an introduced species and invasive weed."

I was going to ask Ted if people grew those as 'flowers' in Ohio. Out here we'd consider it a weed I'm afraid. Well, not actually afraid, it's what we do call it.

My high school biology teacher taught us the definition of a weed is a plant that grows where you do not want it to grow.

The wikipedia article on the above plant, for what it's worth, called it an "invasive weed", so in most cases I would think people do not grow it on purpose. Although in my area, there are some weeds that for whatever reasons became something people started planting intentionally. Echinacea, purple loosestrife, and others. And of course there is that "weed" that used to be downright illegal in the US and now is everywhere and quite intentionally so. 😉

Pretty sure they're weeds here too. These were along the side of a road. The cylindrical shape is what was strange, to me.

Talking about weed(s), I can remember visiting a friend of mine that I've known for almost 50 years now. He lived in Missouri and his dad had an air strip on his 'farm' for his airplanes. That summer I went out to Missouri and we got to mow the strip. For me it was a lot of fun, being out on the tractor just goin' up and down the strip. The 'weeds' at the sides of it were mostly 'weed', and there was a lot of it too. If it had been in CA at the time it would have been raided by the ATF or DEA I'm sure. Out there in Missouri, it was just another weed to be dealt with when it got in the way of good crops.

The first photo is morning glories, but I took them in the afternoon so they had already closed up.

The second we call Johnny Jump Ups around here. I guess they are a wild pansy brought from somewhere overseas and unleashed upon the unsuspecting flora of North America. Or so I read.

It looks like you've got some mighty big ANTS there.

It grows wild around here also, though not as much as it used to I guess. I have heard the THC content is so low - particularly compared to current cannabis - that no one would actually bother with the wild stuff.

They are not really that big, it is just that the flowers are so small, an inch / 25mm or less across.

Perfectly dull grey gloomy day here so far. Doubt we'll see the sun until after 2PM or so today.
