Your Dad said it's a thistle. Still pretty isn't it?

Those are called Canadian Thistle and you will have them forever. They are hard to get rid and if they go to see, next to impossible. Insects love them and the bloom is beautiful.

Lovely shots of the thistle. Oh and those butterflies just a couple of posts ago, well they are gorgeous. I am hoping to make it to a butterfly house before summer is over. I guess I'd better hurry since there isn't much summer left.
