Thistle in the Snow

It won't be long before we have deep snow on the ground and will only see the tops of many of the dried weeds in the fields.

There are many Scotch thistles in the infield of the track beside the house. I leave them and the milkweed to provide food for the goldfinch and for the monarch butterfly caterpillars.

I had started this painting a couple of years ago along with Thistle in the Snow (see posting on 15 March 2010). It is of the same thistle just taken from opposite sides.

This 5" x 12" original, framed watercolour is available for $195.00.
