Temporarily saved from the weed whacker so I can get a shot of those tight little buds and ouchy leaves.

    It’s funny how even a thistle can look beautiful in a photo!

  7. All plants deserve to be photographed. Bet that one will develop an awful lot of seeds from those buds.

    Glad you saved it, Pat.
    So nice.

  16. Thistle plants always make nice studies, rarely are they shot in tight bud though so this makes it unique.

    Spare the thistle until it blooms, at least the Canadian thistles here have a wonderful fragrance. And they are pretty purple blooms. Nice shot of the buds.

    Cool shot, but yes, big OUCH!
