Prickly beauty

Remember my August post on gray blister beetles inundating a colony of buffalo bur? Last week, we went back to the site because I wanted to collect some seeds. In years past, buffalo bur has grown on our property here in town. Most folks would consider the species a pest because of its high toxicity and abundant prickles. But I happen to love nightshades, and I don't want to lose this one. Now I just have to decide where I want to toss the seeds....
