Mullein Forest

 
Just walking my path at home today, but I hadn't realized how many common mullein plants, Verbascum thapsus, are growing up in one area.

I think the seed pods are more interesting than the flowers.

And those big velvety leaves still look soft, even when they are droopy, dry and crunchy.

It's a biennial, and nearby are the leaves for next year's flowering stalks.

I'm off to work in about an hour.

Love that first pic! I always did like mullein. It looks very interesting, but then most plants do.

I like mullein with the velvet leaves and. The great spikes. I have never seen such a forest, though. Cool.
