The ends of a thistle are soft and silky.
I wonder how it would work as pillow stuffing?
It’s not just the stores that are decorating early for Halloween.
This seed head is already shrouded in cobwebs, all set for the spooky evening to come. I hope it lasts 30 more days 😉
Yes, these are the same seeds from earlier this week, but at sunrise instead of sunset 🙂
This time, the rising sun was so bright behind them! I thought they might come out in silhouette, but I wanted the sunlight glowing through them, the way I saw it. I think I got my settings right, so I am very pleased with this photo!
Sunset clouds reflected in the pond glow softly behind these developing seeds.
That is what these thistles are up to, spreading their seeds far and wide. The neighbor’s ranch has many, many thistles, and they are creeping onto our little Back Forty.
Still, they make for pretty pictures.
This magic wand has been shedding little magical sparks. Just three are left. But see the magic glowing all around?
Did the humble dandelion ever serve you, or your children, as a magic wand? It is so satisfying to see the sparkling fluffs fly off like sparks of magic as you wave your wand and run through the field or across the lawn into your own, private, magical world.
