Beautiful shot! The thistles are going crazy around here right now. We need more goldfinches to eat the seeds.

I like thistles too, the national flower of Scotland.

It is till freezing cold. But buds are coming out. Then when there is a cold snap, the poor farmers.

I took a branch of camelia to teach my adult ESOL class, to explain what buds are,

I'm not sure if we have thistle here in the Philippines but I thought I saw one in the mountain province, ahh maybe because of the climate. Your thistle is really cute Manang!

Yes, thistles are beautiful miniature flowers. They fly into the air and land at some distance. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.

Interesting. I wonder if these can grow in Manila? And with dogs around?

I think I missed out on the thistles this year. I saw some last week, but when I went back with my camera, the flowers were gone. Nice shot!

Love the contrast between the soft thistledown and spiky body.
