The Thistle is back

My favorite thistle is back. In 2018 there was this tall thistle in the lily bed. But, last summer, to my disappointment, it was gone. So, in the spring, this year, I was pleased to find it back in the flower bed. It is a Spear Thistle (Cirsium vulgare). A tall plant, about 150 cm. It begins to flower now. So there will be more thistle photos 😉
