It seems while I wasn't watching an invader had moved into my garden space. Hidden among the ferns was a 42" Scotch thistle. A little unusual since it is the first thistle I have ever found in the garden. It has found its final resting place, cremated actually, in the fire barrel. Anyway I've been telling folks it was my special project to celebrate Canada's 150th anniversary this year, and to honour my scottish heritage! It makes for a better story than being a crappy, neglectful, gardener. A selfie of me and my project!
