    These were photographed behind the Gallery Golf Course just off Golf Road in Oak Harbor on Sep 30 2009. I wonder if this is like mullein that only has a rosette the first year, then blooms the second year. I have been unable to follow up on this plant due to the Navy closing off Rocky Point Picnic Area (pout) and haven't found their likeness anywhere else I've been loitering.

    Agree. Leaves very distinctive.
    Try looking for the beautiful teasel heads.

    Thank you!!!
    I'm quite fond of teasel & love the heads in bloom!!! Teasels also make a strong handmade paper.
