I think I remember these weird grassy things (perhaps called teasles?) - at craft fairs when I was young, people would use the top and dress them as hedgehogs! Strange - I havent thought of that since the late 70s probably.

jem: yes, i found they are indeed teasels. that's an interesting memory you have shared. thank you

floots: oh, but they don't run away now, do they? but yes, it's tricky to capture them if windy.

janice: as jem guessed correctly, they are teasels (dipsacus).
thank you.
