Martina - these are fantastic. What are they? I don't think I have ever seen them before. They look like so kind of flowering fern.
here and esp. on the SATURDAY, AUGUST 2, 2008 post on bwc are some more. (Hey, you said you like them, didn't you? ;-)I think it is some kind of Cirsium but I am not sure. Really abundant around here.
hmmmm - well i certainly like them. Cirsium, according to wikipedia, is a type of thistle. They are not like anything I've seen. I like how you're able to photograph them with the sky as a background. It makes it look as if they are 10 feet tall.
-me, by now I am quite sure it is not cirsium. But I have no idea at all. Too tired. Yaaawwwwn.
tatatataaa: phacelia tanacetifolia :-D ... Duh .. cirsium .. I have to rename all my jpgs now ;-)
