A Prairie Thistle...for Monday's Country Backroads

The Texas Thistle, Cirsium texanum, is not to be confused with the
beloved Scottish Thistle.
As you can see....
 the color is a real attention getter,
 especially when the sun is as bright as it is today.
You will find it along the roadways on the prairie,
 blooming from April to July.
As your new week begins today,
 to enjoy all that is around you.

  1. This is one of my favorite subjects for photography....if not for making neighbors mad, I would love to have some here. LOL

  2. I think they are beautiful but are a thorny nuisance on a farm.

  3. These are so beautiful and good for the bees. We call them "Shave brushes":)
