photos of wild flowers, a few trees and flowering bushes that catch my eye with the occasional pet photo.

would anyone know

what this plant might be? I initially thought she was a part of the 'Asteraceae' family, and was calling  her a 'lactuca scariola', finding nicknames like wild opium, compass plant and milk thistle but now I am not so sure, anyone?   

This young woman and child didn't touch these plants, nor did any of the goats and sheep with her, though they'd cleaned out most everything else that was growing around them.

A quick post letting you know I am not in Paris, and whether or  not I carry on with my intended week is unsure....another tragedy, another  shocking event, another senseless act of carnage and cowardice. Our thoughts are with Paris, with the victims and their families and surely the hearts, of the Mothers and Fathers of these killers, are in a very dark place as well, nothing for too many will mean much for a very long time.
