In the Garden #10- Globe Thistle

Another fortnight has passed by and here we are again with the In the Garden Photo Challenge. I’ve be delving again! Back into the archives and I found this beautiful globe thistle photographed at Quex Park and Gardens in Birchington, Kent. The thistle globe flower’s formal name is Echinops, but I think its common name suits it far more.
