What is an unnecessary Flower?
I am going to be unnecessarily flowery now. I didn’t mean to do two purple post in a row, the last one was supposed to be orange.
Spear Thistle, Cirsium vulgare.
Heavy rain a few nights ago weighed the Thistles down so that they are now laying across the path at around waist level. They are very prickly and full of Bumblebees and pushing through them is a very exciting experience. Fizz can get underneath them.
