Balletic Teasel

I saw lots of teasels when out on my walk on Sunday afternoon. I love teasels – along with umbellifers they are two of my favourite motifs in the Wildflower world and I’m strongly attracted to their shapes.Β  They look equally good in dried form as they do when in flower.

This one reminds me of a ballerina striking a pose!

  1. Nice photo! They do look good in flower arrangements. There were MANY of these growing around our farm fields along the ditch banks and sometimes we would have to make our way through them. It’s easy to get tangled up in them. Watch out for the little thorns!
