Photo Pairs

These were taken last week in Imber, the uninhabited village on Salisbury Plain which is now part of the British Army's training ground and to which the general public are allowed access on certain days throughout the year.
 
I visited Imber as part of a photography walk/day out and whilst there, spent ages photographing the thistles.  My Photo Pair this week is ...
 
FLOWER and SEED
 

 Linking with Helena who organises Photo Pairs every week.

  1. Oh I too like thistles. Your Pairs photos are fantastic. What an interesting day trip. Aren't some regiments in the British Forces using the Thistle as their group's insignia?

  8. Lovely as always Eileen! Your thistle down is so clear and fluffy (though I wasn't so enthusiastic about it when picking it out of a bowl of blackberries!)
