A thorny but beautiful subject and one that I as a Scot find myself so at home with: they do seem to have proliferated this year particularly, Barbara.
Very nicely captured.

Great deep colours in this Barbara, which is lovely to see. Carry on knocking off the caterpillars, don't want them heading South.

i wish i could have hair like that! Grin would look good on my balding head.. Grin
an image that invokes the very gentle and sufferable sadness of loss of hair.. (an honest response to the image)

a lovely image.. that bunch at the top is really special..

At this time until October, that plant is covering all Romania, (from Carpathians to grain cultures and from dunes to the Danube Delta) It is considered the worst weed, but it has a wonderful flower as seen in your well done picture

Why are weeds hardier than many domestic flowers? Great and very colourful image.
