By the light of the second floor window, I noticed this massive #spearheadthistle is starting to bloom! #thistle #night-shots #wildweeds #noweygardens

Watch me grow! Many 'weeds' are my garden favorites to document as they overwinter, emerge in spring and transform all year long #thistle #favoriteweeds #rainyday #green #noweygardens

These are unlike any thistles I've ever seen. Wherefore so #velvety

It has only just begun to grow in the warming days. The misty rain this morning contributed. More pics to come 😊

They work very hard and need a nap now and then. It looks like a soft place to lay

Been reciting the like phrase "like the down of a thistle" from 'Twas night Before Christmas" as I collect the soft #flyingseeds of the prickly-stemmed thistle. #spearthistle #poetryinmotion #noweygardens

A tall #sharp #thistle has sprung up against the house. It looks dangerously spikey. #noweygardens
