Thistles

New Year's Eve and I was pulling an acre of Californian Thistles. I now have the technique, but my hands are suffering for it. They are used to more delicate work, like sewing quilts.

This weekend our neighbour will spray the paddock for us. We don't like to use chemicals at all on our property, which gives us a lot of extra work in a lot of areas. But when it comes to thistles, there isn't a lot of choice.

Randomly I came across this beautiful Scottish Art Deco poster of the celtic variety. They look so beautiful......
