These are a bit of a tease in that seeing just the leaves of a plant, it can be difficult to identify it, especially if the leaves in the first year of growth are different from the mature plant in its second season. This clump of leaves caught my eye because they were very distinct and looked gorgeous with the strong light shining through them, every vein and crease being highlighted. It took me quite a while to arrive at a tentative identification. I think they belong to the Common Teasel. There are lots of these new growth plants scattered around the village, especially on the western margin where the area that is now occupied by new-build houses arranged on a steep slope was originally a field full of 6 foot high teasels before it was developed twenty years ago. Time will tell if I have got this right. I will follow the progress of the plants as the year unfolds.
