Nature Photos – Thistles

We’ve had some gorgeous thistles blooming at the farm this year.
The flowers look like sea anemones.  The goats love eating them.  Some of the sow thistle stalks got to be taller than I am.  They bite them off at the bottom and crunch them down until they get to the buds.  It’s funny to watch.  I can’t believe they don’t mind the thorns!
