Do you know what this is?

Thank you for the afternoon visit to San Francisco! I can't afford to get on a plane & go there myself, so your pictures truly provided a "window to the world" for me & brightened my afternoon. Thanks again!!!

If that were coming up in my garden, I would think it was a stinging nettle. But you're not in a zone 4 upper midwest area, so I have no idea.

Thanks for the info on Iceland in the previous post.

Your both welcome, and thanks for coming by!

I'll keep an eye on that volunteer and post when I have it ID'd.

Ahem, *You're* both welcome.

Sheesh.

blackberry? We get wild blackberry vines here in western OR-they look like this when very young, a week later they are pulling the shingles off your roof.

Mmm...That could be! I hadn't thought of blackberry. We have a lot of blackberry around here, and plenty of birds to move it around. As far as I know, it's the invasive Himalayan variety that does the most damage. The native one isn't supposed to be as bad. But I don't know. We shall see.

I went down and looked more closely...I think it is blackberry. The little stem has light thorns. Thanks, anonymous!

Actually, now, several months later... I think this is small nettle. Urtica urens.
