January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

@B. Thomas: I'll bet you do. We don't see many and when this came up at the edge of our property, it grew tall so quickly, I was lucky to get this at eye level!

This is so beautifully shot! I love the way you put the flower in focus and most of the rest of the plant in bokeh...Suddenly the thistle acquires a different dimension!
