Hei May! Wunderschönes Makro!

Sie gelten zwar als Unkraut, aber ich finde Disteln sehr schön. Du hast sie wunderschön fotografiert, May! Liebe Grüße, Anne

It's quite amazing how beautiful thistles can be when viewed close up.

Excellent picture, May.

greetings from northern California,

Epi, Tamás, Paul and Templ, thank you very much for visiting and commenting my thistles. If we look at them closely, we recognize, that nature has not only outfitted them with self defense means, but also with beauty. Best greetings, May

Andreas und Anne, herzlichen Dank! Ich mag nun mal das "Unkraut" im Gegensatz zu vielen "Unmenschen". ;) :) Liebe Grüsse, May

Wunderschön und doch so wehrhaft die Distel, May! Erinnert mich ein wenig an meine Artischokenblüte. Aber kommen ja auch aus einer Familie ;-)

Liebe Grüße, Ellen

How beautiful it is May, I thought I have already commented it, is so perfect... Still waiting for Scotland, but now a YS for this one, un abrazo, Edmundo

Margrit M. Berger (S… on September 20, 2008

Danke sehr, Sonny! :)

Dear Edmundo, thank you very much for seeing this flower and for the Y*! I don't know with which photos I should start, I have so many of Ireland 2007, of El Hierro last Spring, of Scotland last Summer and of the one week in the Engadin this autumn and of course innumerable ones of the place, where I live. ;)) And additionally my photos are blocked on the old Computer, except the newest ones and even worse, my time is too much limited. :(

But I promise you, since you like this thistle, I'll put up an extra beautiful thistle of the Engadin for you in a few days. I am convinced you will like it, it has to do with Giovanni Segantini.

Have you seen my Silver thistle, it's under the tag thistle in my gallery, they are very special for the Alpine regions and they show, what the weather will be like. :)

Edmundo, I hope you are well. Abrazos, May
