On Monday I wonder?

June 24, 2013

Do teasels grow beyond the realms of the motorway?

Are they not thistle-like?

Tough and brutish,  when refusing to be picked?

Looking architectural and grand

golden and bronzed for a while attracting finches.

Until they became blackened by the toxic exhaust fumes

Not so!

Stately grand and very green

with tiny embryonic teasels,

delicate as any thistle down.

Why has this sight previously gone by unnoticed?
