Spring is coming and it is time to think about getting into the garden. "Weeds" are taking over the beds. Some of these "weeds" are quite beautiful. So much so, that they are honored as emblems of family and/or country.

Such is the case with the thistle. This is a beautiful plant (although quite thorny) with a fuzzy purple flower. When the summer comes, the plant dries out and there is fantastic beige fluffy thistle down that might be blown by the wind.

Here are some selections from the shopkeepers at Zazzle.
