Teasel


I don't remember exactly where I was when I photographed this a few years ago.  I don't remember ever seeing it before or after.

That's Teasels for you - they just pop up when you don't expect them.

Awesome clarity in this close-up! I've never seen it blossoming before. I've always seen it as new or dried and withered. Great find!

Sandra said...

This is a truly amazing photo! And I don't remember ever seeing this photo before. It's so beautiful was just the purple in places I would love to have seen it with a full bloom and I would love to have seen it when all the purple was gone. And I've never heard the word teasel before I thought you were trying to type teased are teasing and autocorrect took over haha

I always thought it was called thistle. There was so much of it around when I was a kid. I love them. My first tatoo was a teasel with 4 bees buzzing around it. I'll have to try to remember it's real name because it is growing along the walkway next to our new home.

I have heard that name, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen one. It is unique and pretty.

Michael Rawluk said...

Well, it certainly is beautiful.

happyone said...

I've seen this on my walks. It hasn't bloomed yet though.

ElaineH said...

I have never seen a flower like this before. It quite interesting and beautiful. I love the little flowers. I can see that it is protected with tendrils that have little thorns. Very different! A great image.

Red Rose Alley said...

Oh, that is so unusual. Wouldn't want to handle it though with all those thorns. ; )

Have a nice weekend, Rose.

It seems like every ditch in the country has Teasel growing but I have never seen it in flower.
