The dictionary says, “prickly, composite plants having showy, purple flowers”. They are a favorite target for my camera, yet they rarely make it into my blogs. I will set that right with a few recent ant some “ancient” photos. Just three weeks ago thistles were blooming by my favorite pond.
Now it is time for thistle seeds. Instead of bees and butterflies, the thistles are now visited by finches and other small birds.
One of my first “trademark” images for Café Ludwig was a stylized take of a butterfly on a thistle.
Well, let’s see where the wind will take us.
