I found interesting cut flowers today. They are Blue Thistles. They have a bold bluish purple center and spiky looking stems and petals. Annika and Eliot helped me arange them and place them on the mantle. I tried to find more information on this particular kind of thistle but I did not have any luck. It was grown in Ecuador but I am not sure of its original history or even which particular type of thistle it actually is. It is unusual and quite beautiful in its own way. I plan on drying the flowers when they begin to fade.
