Bull Thistle

Grabbed this from the side of the road on my way to work. It was an eye catching plant during the summer--bright green and purple. But like most specimens these days, the colors are subdued.

Cirsium vulgare, Bull Thistle, I think this is.


  1. Congrats on starting the blog!! Great idea and this is a beautiful photo. I will read everything with great interest. Love these dark monochrome colours..

  2. Thanks so much, Val! :-)

    Monochrome can be such a pleasing palette, can't it?
