Thistle and Something Else
Unknown. Update: I have been informed this is milkweed. This is Common Milkweed to be exact. That is what I thought but was unable to find any information to confirm it. Thanks to my friend over at the Lilac and Roses blog for letting me know.
I found these plants to be very beautiful. And I am just in love with the macro images that I got. I even had fun identifying the first plant but had no luck on identifying the second one. I know that many would consider these to be weeds, but like my aunt said the other day "A flower is only a weed when it grows someplace that you don't want it to grow." How true is this in so many different aspects of our life. I won't get on a soap box or anything right now. But it is so easy to be bogged down by so many different things in our lives that we forget to weed out the things that are not necessary to survive. So take some time today and weed out some of the little things that are weighing you down and let yourself enjoy the view around you.
