I wish I'd read Pam's advice before I took this photo of a giant thistle
Saturday at our local County Extension Gardens.
It really WAS amazing - taller than my husband, I'm sure.
It was off the beaten path, but thanks to a Master Gardener working there,
we found it--along with many, many other beautiful flowers...
And I can't think of anyone who does it more naturally than
Sue (and Allan) at the Tangly Cottage Gardening blog.
Yes. I'm a big fan of Tangly Garden.
