I’ve been admiring the huge thistle in our garden for a while now. It looked splendid when the purple flowers were out, and it was a magnet for the bees. But I almost prefer it now that the flowers are done, and the spiky stems and leaves contrast so beautifully with the fluffy softness of the thistledown. I realise that it will be spreading on the breeze, and we’ll probably have a garden full of thistles next year, but I can’t quite bring myself to cut it down yet.
