I think thistles are such a cool plant. I spotted a couple here in the woods this week too-love your photos. I remember back when we raised nubien goats-they loved eating thistles-always wondered how they got past the prickly parts of the flower
I've always loved Scottish thistles. They used to grow in the fields around my childhood home.
Jim, such beautiful pictures. They really do tell a story without words.
It's a beautiful colour, and very unusual looking but I like it
Lovely series, Jim.
Even for the lowly thistle, fall comes, days numbered.
Interesting transition in the photos.I spend way too much time ripping thistles out from everywhere they shouldn't be! They're pretty, but what pests!
I love how you play with images, Jim. I have the blood of Scotland running through my veins, so I am particularly fond of thistles. However, I so get Terry's comment above ~ here thistles are pests. To me the thistle symbolizes tenacity which is definitely a characteristic of the Scots! Happy weekend!
Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
