Wild Carrot a.k.a. Queen Anne's Lace?
Prickly stems with lines along. 

Knapweed and St John's-wort (yellow)

The yellow flowers look like a type of St John's-wort

Knapweed and St John's-wort

Teasel on 21/7/2012,  approx  doubling in size per day

Teasel 22/7/2012, already over 5.5 feet
from nothing about three days ago

Lots of new flowers in the past couple of days, including the army of teasel shooting up at amazing speed.
