Blo-Ma: thistle

 




Thistles, 16.6.2013

Some might consider thistles a weed,
but I think they're beautiful.

I'm linking to Blo-Ma.

  3. I think they are beautiful as long as they don't invade native bushland.

  5. Thistle flowers are the most wonderful colour, and I love seeing them, so long as there aren't any in my lawn when I am barefoot...

  13. Dear Gunilla,
    I like thistles, they bloom at places, where everything else refuses to grow, they are beautifu even in winter covered by ice and the colour is one of my favourites.
