Giant fennel (Ferula communis) on the roadside

 

This huge plant is now flowering along roadsides and in fields. It can grow to over 3 meters in height (see the photo with the car passing next to them. These are not particularly tall exemplars) and attracts large amounts of insects of all kinds.

The fleshy stems burn slowly and were used for torches in antiquity. Prometheus is said to have used such a torch to bring fire to humanity.
