Puffs

Two things I like about Thistles. The first is that different kinds of insects love them.


And the second thing is when they go to seed. They burst open in huge puffs!




“I wonder why you care, God— why do you bother with us at all? All we are is a puff of air; we’re like shadows in a campfire.”
Psalm 144

The color and texture is magnificent and your pictures make it so clear :) I won't pass a thistle by from now on without appreciating it! :)

I enlarged the puffs and went back and forth several times trying to decide which two I love, 4 and 6 are my choice. I just LOVE the puffs and the seeds. they are so beautiful and I care not that they are weeds.

These are really pretty. The thistle I have by my shed is all puffs right now. It does look pretty either way

Those are beautiful photos Ginny. Great reasons to like thistles.

Your photos are beautiful Ginny, but it's obvious you never had to cut thistles out of a corn field before they went to seed! Hot work on a summer day.
