bad ass thistles
it’s thistle season and these monsters are my favorite. once again, they are considered a noxious weed, but i don’t care, i still love them. they grow up to 5 feet high, the flowers fill your palm, and leaves are aggressively sturdy and prickly. you can’t miss them. these are bad ass thistles.
musk thistles (Carduus nutans)
