argemone sp

early stages in the plant life

I think something else.

Looks different from Argemone mexicana and Argemone ochroleuca

Not Argemone at all. A Thistle.

Cirsium sp.

oh good. then on follow up we will see a nice thistle or two… will wait for follow up..

Yes, appears closer to Cirsium as suggested by …

There are two possibilities based on basal rosette: Cirsium argyracanthum and Carduus edelbergii, latter seems more accurate.
