Blessed weeds

The other day, I noticed some weeds growing through the gravel in our driveway.  I’m not an enormous fan of weeds but these were thistles, which I am keen on.  I’m growing a globe thistle in one of my flowerbeds at the back of the garden but its flowers aren’t totally out yet.

I think these thistles can stay.  We’ve had quite a few butterflies and I hope that we get a few more.
