  1. Lovely photographs - thistles are so decorative. Pity they are also such pests, but I often let them survive where they shouldn't be because they are so lovely.

  4. I espceially like the last shot.

    Like Jenny I'm often guilty of letting these 'noxious weeds' (that's how the English law defines them) grow becauase they are so beautiful.

  5. I think they are lovely but definitely not in my garden. I can see three feet high examples just outside my fence.

  6. They may be considered a nuisance but they make for pretty pictures - and birds like them!

  7. We were thinking along the same lines for macro Monday. Like that you've given us thistle in different stages of growth and your bokeh is something I hope to be able to shoot some day.
