Flodman's Thistle, up-close and very pink

Almost a perfect semi-sphere of bright pink and delicate white, the flower of Flodman's Thistle is surprisingly lovely. Once you get past the rough leaves and prickles, that is.

These large thistles are common through the prairies in Saskatchewan. Look close, and see their tiny white stars.
