Thistle, common throughout the highlands, islands and lowlands of Scotland, the prickly purple thistle has been Scotland's NATIONAL EMBLEM for centuries. This proud and regal plant, which grows to a height of five feet, has no natural enemies because of the vicious spines that cover and protect it like a porcupine.

Began this perfectly rainy day with a pot of tea and another addition to my journal: Scotland's national flower, the Thistle. Legend has it that a sleeping party of Scottish Warriors were saved from a Norse ambush when one of the soldiers stepped on a thistle and cried out in pain. ☁️☕️☁️☕️☁️
