SCOTLAND.......

TEASEL taken in Scotland
This image encapsulates for me all the walking, backpacking and cycling trips that I have had in Scotland over the years.........
Whenever I look at this image I don't just see a prickly plant....I see a replay in my mind of all those wonderful trips and the various memories just come back to me......

This is a very fine teasel. it is prickly but it is a scabious not a thistle.
it's a smashing shot though.

There are such things like this,,so apparently simply to someone else´s eyes,,but that are able to release a chain reaction of feelings within our minds. It can be an image, a phrase, sometimes even just a smell, the key to a forgotten vault of wonders. That´s why I day after day effort my self in having a nice present, so in that way I shall later enjoy it as a sweet, immortal memory.

You know, I think that Teasel is a bit different from what we call Milk Thistle in California. The spines on your Teasel look finer and a bit more pointy. Anyway, around here our Thistles are considered invasive--they can really take over, and do. Nasty buggers to remove. Otherwise, an extremely photogenic plant--as witnessed by your Teasel photo.
Best regards, Don
