The excellent stinging nettle image by Charles prompted me to jump in with a month old image of a similar subject in our yard. Hairy bedstraw is a strange plant with barbs on the stems and leaves that act like Velcro against the skin and if it is brushed up against itself there is a hopelessly tangled mess to deal with. The plant I believe is in the Madder family known as Rubi Aceare, Galium pilosum.
I also include a bonus image of the tiny flowers the plant produces.
