Never seen so many thistles in one place before …
The bottom photo is taken today, the top one about 2 weeks ago. It has been sunny and warm this weekend.
I have been taking tonnes of photographs of wild flowers this month … they are everywhere and in abundance. I like the mix and match effect of this double-expore from the piece of meadow that you can also see on the first photo in my previous post.
More mix & matches starting at Francesca’s Fuoriborgo.
Have a great week.
on the mountain is really pretty these days :)
This is just a small selection of what is in bloom in my place right now.
More corner views about what is blooming starting at Francesca’s FuoriBorgo.
This flower is called Queen Anne’s Lace or Wild Carrot (Daucus Carota) and it does not look this pretty in my corner of the world this time of year. They are very abundant, and I read somewhere that the root of the plant is a bit like a carrot (hence its name). However, I have not tasted them … yet.
The above pics are from a couple of months ago, but today I stumpled on this post about how to use the small seeds in the flowers. Wow, I really have to harvest some of these flowers next year …
