Teasel

Weed by any other name: thanks to Alistair's ' Keeble-Martin' like knowledge of flora & fauna, I am becoming an expert in the weeds & wild flowers of this blooming country of ours...he can also play the banjo...so if you need wedding shots & a turn, we're your men! :-)

This is great . The tones and DoF are perfect. Very dreamy.
Dave Carrington: Hi, Chris. Glad you like it: as you've probably gathered, I'm not a flower-shot fan(!), so this is uncharted territory for me! smile
I can see we are going to be in trouble with the PixelPixie poaching "flower" shots on her patch. Not that this is a flower of course. I did not think you would succumb to your feminine side with all those tractors and boats to photograph. Just shows you how little you know someone.

Oh the picture, well you know I am going to like it cuz its blurry, Mike won't like it though! I nearly put up a similar shot myself. Enjoyed the chinwag as always.
Dave Carrington: Tractors...boats? Bring on the variform flora of this green & pleasant land for me to snap: I love 'em, me! smile
As always, had a grand day out & all the better for finding a plant that Jose hasn't photographed!! smile
Lol, Alistair is teaselling you! Teasels belong to the same family as Scabious, so definitely not a weed! The prickly part you have photographed here is the dead flower head - to brilliant effect I might add.

Where did you find these along my patch? Lol, Dave photographing flowers...
Dave Carrington: see the above!!smile
I'm fast becoming a flower-person, Petal!

Dave Carrington: Hi, Mal. I'm even listening to Donovan albums...smile
Looks like War of the Worlds.
Dave Carrington: So long as its the George Pal version...
