Thistle

Why do weeds have such nice flowers?  And even those that do not have such pretty flowers, have flowers in very nice, bright colours.  There are some behind my yard that look almost like daisies, but are annoying weeds that take over everything.  There is also some kind of weed in the pasture that has very cute little purple flowers that are similar to daisies but have purple petals with yellow centres.

Even thistle flowers are a very pretty shade of purple.  This time I drove around the outside of the fence instead of climbing through again and wounding myself further.  Getting this picture proved to be painful anyway, since the thistles seemed intent on attacking me, no matter how carefully I looked for a thistle-free patch to kneel down on.

About Kathy

I'm a twenty-something who loves animals, farming, photography and cooking/baking. Luckily enough, photography works really well with the other three subjects, so I carry my camera around practically everywhere. Other than that, my life is pretty uneventful.
