Saw this weed as I do my morning walk: the variegated leaves looks pretty. Anyone knows what it is?

I just planted some cyclamen, just for the pretty foliage and I think your weed is just as pretty, the cyclamen will bloom, not sure the weed will...but still.

It looks like Milk Thistle, possibly Silybum marianum:

Oh, and they are very thorny but have beautiful blooms!

If it is Blessed Milk Thistle, it's apparently invasive: http://www.cal-ipc.org/ip/mana...

I went ahead and imported the first two so that tarev will receive acorns. Smiling
