Late summer, the beautiful Musk Thistle appears in pastures and road sides. The hummingbirds love it, the farmers hate it.
It is considered a noxious weed. Contrary to popular belief, the Musk Thistle is not poisonous to cattle. The main beef (pun intended) against the Musk thistle is its thorny stalk and spiked leaves that keep the cattle from reaching their beloved grass so they go elsewhere to graze.
It’s always something.
