Is it one of the bottom leaves, Jimbolena? If so, it's quite natural, they do die off after a while but new ones should come out of the middle.

Re Burdock, thought this might interest you!

Burdock and Velcro

After taking his dog for a walk one day in the early 1940s, George de Mestral, a Swiss inventor, became curious about the seeds of the burdock plant that had attached themselves to his clothes and to the dog's fur. Under a microscope, he looked closely at the hook system that the seeds use to hitchhike on passing animals aiding seed dispersal, and he realized that the same approach could be used to join other things together. The result of his studies was Velcro.7]

I think his army days have not been good for himI Will now apply the ignore button!
