Unloved ...

A weed is but an unloved flower.  
~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

There is certainly 'beauty' in this beast but a beast it will remain!  The Canada Thistle (Cirsium arvense) is one tough ... 'WEED!'  I think it will forever remain 'unloved!'  Although, I will admit, I do love to photograph them!  LOL!


  1. They are pretty! I like to photograph them too, with their spiky leaves and textured flower bases, and their colours, but such a nuisance in the fields and flowerbeds!

    1. A nuisance indeed and yet a dear friend's Scottish husband is busy trying to establish them in his flowerbed! I guess he misses the national emblem of Scotland! Blasted Scots ... perhaps they are to blame for the thistle invasion! Haha! Just teasing! :)
