Yesterday, the weather was just perfect, and after an inch of rain last week, there was only one job that really needed doing. It was the mowing. And most urgent were a few areas just outside the house yard where thistles were shooting up out of the ground.
As I walked up and down with the mower I was struck by the resemblence of the thistles to tall pagodas. There were a lot of them and it was a wonderful sight. Luckily I could record it in a photo, because now it’s just yet another patch of lawn.
