Thanks so much for looking, Delana. The only time they're really noticable is when they're blooming. Otherwise I think we pass right by them without even seeing them. The flowers have a wonderful fragrance and they make a great climbing plant. They grow all over North America, even up into Canada.

I have to agree---thistles have the ability to stab you when you'd never think they could.....like cactus spines!

I don't even think surgical needles are like thistle thorns...

Even the dried spikes aren't anything like thistle thorns!

Hey, I actually had a thistle stab me in the thumb, enough to draw quite a bit of blood, so just "poking" me ain't a big concern. :D

Aren't they though? I really love the whole look of the plants! They grow like wildfire and climbed all over the fence this summer. I'm going to plant more of the seeds all down along the whole fence to cover it next summer. The blossoms smell wonderful and the leaves are pretty too. I kind of like those cactus-looking fruits. The spikes are really soft when they're still green like this but when they dry out they get stiffer and can poke you.

Hi! My name is Kathy and I live in northern Minnesota, USA, where the winter temps have dipped down to -60º below zero F. The summers used to be mild but in recent years have been up in the 90ºs. I love being able to travel the world from my office chair, through all your great photos! I've learned tons about photography and editing photos thanks to all the great people on here and their willingness to share tips. Thank you to all you Wunderfriends who take time to look and leave notes---I deeply appreciate it. :-)/>free hit countersCreate your own visitor map!
