Giant Hogweed

This imposing and slightly sinister plant grows in the gardens of Usk Castle. I was struck by the similarity with an image taken the previous week (meadow). There is a difference in scale however, this shot was taken looking down from the high castle walls these hogweed plants are around 12 feet tall.
