Flowers on Friday..

It’s Friday!

This week I found a curious thistle that I wanted to photograph.. I bought it actually! ..lol.. not something I thought I’d ever say. It’s a beautiful and curious creation and there’s so much detail looking closer.

  1. What an adorable post, you really made me smile and reminded me of something similar I did! I got a giant cognac glass filled it with rocks, shells and small crab carcasses found on the beach (it makes a lovely display) and then took a shot and made some fun with it just like you with some big eyes πŸ™‚ So thanks for the entertainment!
    On the other hand all the other images are just absolutely beautifully executed, you certainly know how to play up beauty!
    Wishing you as well a wonderful weekend!

      1. My pleasure Robyn! I usually find out plant names from the RHS πŸ™‚ Have a look at some of the other eryngiums, they’re amazing plants! Milk thistle is a really useful wildflower for insects. I often check out fields or verges where it’s growing to see what I might find πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks heaps Eliza – I thought they were so fascinating.. and gorgeous in their own spiky way.
      Yes Sarah said the same thing. I kind of like the name.. it seems to suit. I have visions of mermaids!!
