The Gallery … Green

June 26, 2013

This is the first time I have posted to the Gallery but was prompted by Julia .  I planted some Teasel seeds sometime ago. A friend told me that they attracted birds and indeed those I see by the roadside are very attractive to finches.  This beauty has taken me by surprise as I thought that Teasels were golden brown and became blackened by the exhaust fumes beside the motor way! It is very tall and green and the tiny teasel heads are a delicate down and barely an inch long. The huge leaves and the thorns on the stem appear to be protecting a little treasure. So I am looking forward to watching it mature and see if it does indeed attract birds.
