Globe Blue Thistle

About two weeks ago we were, once again, visiting my childhood friend. She has a huge flower garden. She has the flowers planted by color and so that there is flowers in bloom from early spring into late fall. This was the first time I was able to see the Globe Blue Thistle (Echinops Ritro) in bloom. The blooming is almost over. The flowers already fading in color, turning into light blue/gray. Luckily there were still a few rich in blue color. While I was busy photographing she had been busy digging up some plants she gave to me. Thank you so much dear friend. I have planted them and am so much looking forward to next spring and summer to see them blooming. Well, I hope they survive the winter.
