I think one of the most majestic of plants that I grew this year was the Fuller's Teasel.  By the end of the summer, it must have topped 15 feet tall, with hundreds of beautiful thistle like flowers that the Bombus and Honeybees loved.  I saved all the flower heads and dried them, it is making a beautiful dried flower arrangement that sits on my frontroom coffee table.  Watch out for anyone that bumps it, they are in for a surprise  evil  it would hurt, and everyone stays away.

The Teasel also have beautiful leaves that surrounded the stalks of the plants, it formed a cup that caught the rain water and made for some very interesting pictures.  I posted a picture of the water cups before, but they are worthy of another glimpse for those that may have missed the post.  Enjoy the pictures.  Have a wonderful and beautiful day, on our Great Planet, Earth.  Cindi

Aren't they gorgeous plants?  I love them.  Next year I'll have a big enough space for them.

Now remember, gather that water and wash your face with it, your man will be enchanted!  Smiley

I have been inspired with your clean and fairy photos, and I was working hard in my orchad. I could not find the onions, because the weed. Now, it is not an example but perhaps I will harvest something.
