Well, here's another mystery plant from my wildflower seed sowing last year--came up again this year as a perennial! Its leaves are distinctive. Anyone know what it might be?

It reminds me of thistle of some sort. But I don't think that is what it is.

Thanks, Stefan--I think you are right about the Centaurea! I recall that was in the wildflower mixture and I did have some blooming in that area last year. Thank You! Thumbs up
