I snapped this photo of a bee pulling out the flower petals to get to the nectar in the inner part of the thistle plant. I am sure there are technical names for each part of the plant. So, if I got them wrong I apologize.
I just loved watching the bees work.
Until next time…peace

I know this is a common weed around here. But I find the thistle to be uniquely beautiful. I always get helpful suggestions that I should cut them down along the edge of the property. In my opinion, the flowering thistle is not harming anyone. I know the bees like them. So I just leave the plant alone.
Until next time….peace
