Immediate neighbors, non-native thistle and  Queen Anne's Lace.  (Later in the day.)

I saw what I think was purple milkweed walking along the natural waterfront of the Eastern north shore of Lake Erie. There was a beautiful little patch of wildflowers along the shoreline. Saw dragonflies but no Monarchs; perhaps they had already headed south.
