The Thistles

The thistles have been in bloom for quite awhile. I like them for two reasons, which I will show you on my next post.




I don't believe that thistles existed before Adam and Eve disobeyed,because of this bible verse:

“The ground will sprout thorns and weeds, you’ll get your food the hard way, Planting and tilling and harvesting…” 

Genesis 3

I love thistles, have never seen one in real life, but have seen photos many times. these are so beautiful... I assume they are prickly if touched.

We have them at the ranch! I haven't seen them lately so perhaps they are more abundant in the spring.....at least in Texas.
