Heavenly Blue

I was running an errand this week when I happened upon these Blue Thistles along the sidewalk so of course I grabbed the camera from my bag and here they are! The blue was so beautiful in the sunshine and we have had so much rain that all the green served as a perfect backdrop.

I've not seen such. We have thistles but a different variety. These are very beautiful!

That's funny, I noticed some of these on a walk the other day and thought I hadn't paid much attention to them before. They must be proliferating!

Very striking, an unusual shade of blue.

They are very pretty, RedPat. Are those the flowers that have leaves like little saws?

Randy said...

They look like little star bursts.

Never saw blue thistle before. The color does vibrate, doesn't it.

So pretty Pat, wild flowers add such a lovely burst of colour to the urban streets don't they.

I like the contrast of the green leaves with the blue-grey globe thistles.

Beautiful. Who's have thought thistles could be so colourful.

That is just a fascinating photo, spectacular clarity. Those blue thistles are so pretty that they almost look fake.
