Sorry I forgot the text. I took this photo of a flower growing in a neighbours garden. It's the first time I have used a SLR camera, so any pointers on how to get a better shot would be great. Also does anyone know what this bush is ? I have never seen it flower before.
Not dandelion! Cannot see the leaves. Not sure but will try to find out. Goggled globe thistle....Cheryl may be right. Not blue but.......
Globe thistles are stalwart perennials that produce metallic-blue blossoms with perfectly round flower heads atop ribbed stems. Plants grow two to five feet tall and almost as wide. The spiny-edged leaves are white and woolly underneath.
