Giant thistles

I have noticed these tall giant blue grey thistles for the last couple of weeks gradually getting taller.

They have flattened stems with leaves that appear continuous to the stem without a stalk. At the moment they have no flowers out but I’m watching and waiting.

They are cotton thistle (Onopordum acanthium)
