The Thistle Has Bloomed

and I think this is one of the most beautiful weeds I have ever seen.

I hate to cut it down.

It seems DH bumped into it when he was filling the bird feeders. Ouch!
He does not like it nearly as much as I do. :)

I thought this lunaria (money plant) looked interesting with the sunlight shining through.


  1. Is that what they also call Silver Dollars or Sand Dollars? Something like that anyway! lol I used to have some growing years ago but they were taking over everything and I ended up taking them all out. Ouch for your poor hubby bumping into that thistle!!

  2. I just picked a bouquet of 'Money plant' yesterday! The trick is getting the seed layer off without ripping the silvery paper layer.

  3. I love thistles, too. And, don't they look wonderful in photos?

  4. I love the money plant,but you can have the thistle. I live on a farm and in the summer it is my job to chop the thistles along the creek bank.

    Do you plant the seeds for the money plant in the fall?

  5. The thistle flower has always been one of my favorite flowers and I had never seen a money plant before this picture. It's so interesting looking especially since you can see its seeds inside.
