Blue Globe Thistle
Beginning to bloom. One little flower-ette at a time, this flower head becomes a blue ball with dozens of tiny flowers each with its own little network of tiny leaves. Amazing. The bees love these flowers. It is common to see several bees working each flower ball. The Blue Globe Thistle is one of my favorite plants.
