Those that know me would not be surprised to find that one of my very favorite flowers is the thistle. It was part of what I asked for as a boutineer when my wife and I were planning our wedding, and if I have a chance to wear a flower again, I will request one again. Well, without further ado, flower power:
I only wish I could have found a heartier looking specimen: almost all the flowers I came across were wilty. Maybe it is time to politely request some rain?
