Thistle Gone to Seed for Green Thumb Sunday

How to join Green Thumb Sunday
Last Sunday my Green Thumb post was an image of Purple Thistle with it's white fluff billowing around it.
This week's post is the photo of a thistle that has dried up and gone to seed - with the fluff still intact in the dry pod.
See how the brown pod folds back to allow the fluff to dry out and fly away?
It is hard to believe that that lush green spiky bulb in last week's image actually turns into that brown-but-still-spiky plant.
See those little seeds on the end of the white fluff?
Next week's post will show how these thistle seeds get dispersed.
Don't forget to come back!
