Those of you who know me know that I tend to let things grow in my little patch of the world that I partially control. Letting Bull Thistles grow is a good example. My ancestors spent much time trying to eradicate them, including paying me to cut them down when I was a kid. I like to let my single example of something on my little city plot grow, and be observed carefully. On a big farm there might be thousands of thistles and teasels (their equally spinny cousins). I have just one teasel. The spiny floral heads are beautiful at all stages. Click the one above in pre-blossom state, and then the same one below a couple of days later.Probably some good Maya pictures later today, or tomorrow. Today is her 2nd Birthday!
