Prickly Sowthistle (Sonchus asper)

I was thinking only yesterday that I hadn’t seen a Prickly Sowthistle in the garden this year. There are some already flowering down the hill from us. This morning I found a young plant, not yet flowering, among some foxgloves seedlings. The pic is actually from 27 July last year.
