Thistledown On the Wind…

28 Aug

What comes to mind when you think of a thistle? Scotland? Eeyore? I think that one of the added images to my mind will be the slightly insane thistle that poked up through one of the small evergreens in my yard. Unhindered by the thick branches, it poked up through, big and strong, and started producing large purple flowers. Now it’s heading into thistle-down stage, and small poofs of plant material are floating by our windows. Here’s a picture of the spiny plant.
