Humble Thistle

The thistle is the national flower of Scotland.  Legend tells the story of invading Norsemen who wanted to sneak up on Scottish Clansmen.  So they decided to take off their shoes to proceed with a surprise attack at night.  One of the Norsemen stepped on a thorny thistle and screamed waking the Scottish Clansmen.  Their surprise was spoiled and the Norsemen were defeated all because of the humble thistle.  


This thistle plant was the certpiece of this flower garden.  





Blessings from Ringle, Wisconsin.
