Milk Thistle, google that and you can see other photos and read up on it. Not a desirable plant to most people, can be invasive.

I agree, it looks like Milk Thistle (Silybum marianum)

THANK YOU!!! It's beautiful and contains a flavanoid that is beneficial for the liver. We have three acres of au naturale woods, so it's fine with me!!! Thumbs up
