From Wikipedia:

Thistle is the common name of a group of flowering plants characterized by leaves with sharp prickles on the margins, mostly in the family Asteraceae. Prickles often occur all over the plant – on surfaces such as those of the stem and flat parts of leaves. These are an adaptation that protects the plant against herbivorous animals, discouraging them from feeding on the plant.

We’re so lucky that our friend Carson over at The 7MSN Ranch is a phenom at Photoshop.

I sent her this photo of Harriet straight out of my camera:

And she sent this masterpiece back:
