The gatekeepers loved my blue thistle last year, so I hope it grows as well this year. I had up to 4 of them on it at one time. I found a bit of old formica (think that's what it is) in the shed and placed it behind the plant, and was surprised how effective it was, even looking a bit like sky or water. V2 is the way I took the shot, but I have mirrored it in V1 because the human eye is apparently more comfortable reading from left to right, but will see what you think.
