I couldn’t go to the Highlands….

So the Highlands visited me! I was so surprised to see these thistles growing in my back garden.

Of course, as soon as I went outside to take photos, it got windy and most of the images are blurry. These 3 were the best of the lot. πŸ™‚


  1. Oh, they remind me of my childhood! I grew up on farms, and encountered many scotch thistles. Quite bitey if you get too close, but pretty flowers indeed. I remember thinking as a teenager that I’d like to dye my hair that particular shade of purple πŸ™‚
