i don’t know how ancient burdock is, but i find it a strangely reassuring plant. it is hard for me sometimes, despite all of the attempts to bring them alive in films and books, to imagine the dinosaurs with any vividness. but seeing a burdock leaf the size of a car hood brings the jurassic to life for me more than every cgi animated t-rex in every film i’ve seen.
