The thistles had their seed ready to be blown with the wind and one flower had erupted forming this beautiful lace veil. When I cleaned away the mess, the little hairs on the seed felt like silk in my hands. This thistle is called felt thistle in Finnish, and I wonder if it has been used for felting. I know that another wild flower, eriophorum, remains intact in peat and is used together with wool for making peat felt.
Melanie from Jellybeanangel has given me this award:
I'm honoured to receive this, because making people smile is not always easy. The award itself makes me smile, and I hope you too! Melanie didn't give any strict rules to go with the award, so I make my own. I will give this award to the following blogs:
Eileen's Attic because Eileen is making the Summer stash challenge with me and I love her dolls
Meet me at Mike's because Pip makes everyone smile
paperiaarre because Kaija is my daughter and I can be happy and proud of her
