Thistles – pretty pesky weeds!


My run/walk this afternoon had me watching the sky with one eye and watching for snakes with the other.  It was a warm muggy afternoon with a storm brewing.  This is nothing new as we’ve had a storm every afternoon for the past few days!

The clouds were rolling in as black as black but for just a few minutes the sun shone through and I took these photos of the pretty thistles. I think I like the black and white version of my thistle the most and the bug is just visible on the edge of the flower.

Are thistles a pesky weed where you are? I still think they are quite pretty though!

 

See the bug in the thistle?

These were taken on my iPhone and edited with the photo app. Nothing flash or fancy!!

    I always thought they were rather pretty for a weed.
