About This Image

Hi Fella, here's the thistle I took this eve at the beach, - not sure if you saw my comment on your thistle pic, but from the beach where we were, could see the refinery near Ferndale WA in the distance, and mentioned you to my DH at the time.

thanks Lulu, I will then : ) Just sent you and the other NZ girls a different Nasturtium pic, with several colours. It hasn't shown up yet tho. but keep checking. Recall you said you didn't realize about the various shades of them, so saw them today and thought of you.

Alandra, I really like it so you are going to have to leave it now. The cattle in my photos would love to munch on these.

getting back to you, Karen, as was in a rush earlier &forgot to thank you : )- maybe the thistle you saw before was a different type. This is quite a large type, but there is a smaller one, that doesn't have such a large area below the flower. --to be honest, I wasn't that happy with this one, and mainly just wanted to show Fella, as had told him on his thistle pic, that coincidentally, had taken a thistle pic around the same time he had : )- and that we could see his area from where we were at the beach that same evening- perhaps you saw my comment on his pic. I had considered removing it once he'd seen it, - but strange as things often happen, it got several hits, - so guess it will stay here after all : ) Have noticed several times before, that pics that I'm not that pleased with, others seem to like, and vice versa.

Oh, I thought the area under the flower had seeds. It looked like that on the thistle I shot.

believe it hasn't gone to seed yet.

Excellent color. I notice many of the seeds are gone.
