Sky High Teasel by Barrie Woodward

The head of a teasel, seeds all dispersed. This one was approximately 7 feet tall. A thorny biennial. The spent seed heads are often seen in flower arrangements

They really do reach for the sky.

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    I have always wanted to know what this prickly pretty plants were. THey are everywhere around here. This is very nice~! Congraualtions for you feature today in As Is~!

  • Thank you, Brenda. I grew these from wildflower seeds. Apparently they can be quite invasive. Will have to see what happens this year … hopefully won’t be taken over by them. :)
