Thistles meadow


Thistles meadow

This over by the veg patch. This year the nettles have given way to the creeping thistles and looks nice to see it all over.

Some googly facts:
The seeds are an important constituent in the diet of many farmland birds. However, creeping thistle is also a food plant for several important insect pests
