It's a nettle but with slight purplier flowers than usual so maybe something similar. Did you touch it? That would have been the decider Smile

Yes it looks as if it is from the nettle family but perhaps not the stinging variety.

We call these stinging nettles, have seen them with this type of flower, if you get stung by one the old remidy was to rub a Dock leaf on the sting, great capture JolineSmile

Never seen a nettle grow quite this tall but then in the Emerald Isle there is plenty of moisture so could well be. Any way it's made a lovely subject for your camera Joline.

I would say it is a stinging nettle, Joline, you should have touched it and found out Wink Carol

I have seen these leaves here-- but the flower is different--- likely another nettle--

Its a large juicy nettle you will be itching by now. rub it with a dock leaf should be growing next to it.
Lovely shot of it though, I sometimes make nettle tea. GrinGrin

Yes it's a common Nettle.The male and female plant has different flowers,but I am not sure if this is a male or femaleSmile
a great imageSmile
6 Aug 2014 9:33PM
I think the male and female flowers are usually both found on the same plant, but I'm not 100% certain.
