This close-up of thistles focuses on the “artichoke-like” head. When blooming, there is purple and green, but as the dry fall air turns them to golden and burnt sienna colors, the stalks become desiccated, woody and remain terribly sharp. It is no wonder that they are despised by ranchers and landowners. However, I appreciate them for their shape and colors.
