Towering Teasels

Teasels(Dipsacus fullonum) are around all year either as new tender heads with their delicate purple flowers or as brown sentinels in winter sometimes snow catchers. They provide seeds for birds and food for insects. We often ignore them but on closer inspection the beauty of them becomes apparent.

Quite different in the cold weather in January.
