The thistle is probably not the plant that first comes to mind when you have to connect a plant to the word 'beauty'. But a plant's beauty is to me much more than what you see at first glance. A plant can be beautiful because it is part of the memories and thoughts of a person’s mind. The thistle takes me back to my childhood, when we were playing in the fields and meadows, where we sometimes brushed against thistles and blew the little parachutes into heaven. The thistle is a part of my childhood landscape.
