Teasel

Teasel is an alien wildflower that commonly occurs in lowland habitats with moist soil. I encounter it almost daily, yet I still pause to admire its form and natural beauty. The spiny flower heads – and aesthetic value – persist through the winter, providing year-round entertainment.

  1. Beautiful shots, especially the one where you caught the hummingbird. We have quite a bit of teasel around here. They do have a particular sort of style.
