You might see weeds, but I see wild flowers

Thistles




So me and the boy Whisky, are back in Wales.




Whisky



The first 'Thistle' we met was one of his brothers.




Thistle





Plenty of other thistles to see this morning though; the prickly kind.








This first one really lives up to its name, with some viscous spear like spikes.






Spear Thistle




A common plant of pastures, rough grassland, roadsides and waste ground.








Marsh Thistle



Also comes in white.









The final one, is also very common and can be found in similar areas to the previous two.





Creeping Thistle










Notice there are no spikes on the stems of this thistle.


Still hurts to touch them though.
