common mullein

This beautiful stalk of common mullein was dying to be cut, ignored as it was in a waste area near an old pecan stump. I think this might be a hybrid--a cross between the wild mullein and a similar mullein I grew from seeds I brought back from England. This has bigger yellow florets than most wild mullein does. As always, it was covered with insects when I found it outside, and a few of them snuck into the house with it. I'm also itching from the hairy residue its leaves left on my arms. All just part of the process!
