This is a watercolor from my nature series (see previous posts for more). I love this as a symbol of Scotland. It is a beautiful shape and colors of purple and green.
I have had to pull some thistles recently from my garden and flower beds, as they have become very invasive, crowding out other plants. Good leather garden gloves are a must (ouch) but it has been so rainy here lately, the roots slip from the ground with a strong, slow pull.
