This years crop ......

Of Teasels, a really important source of food for many birds in winter not least of which is  the Goldfinch.

Many other species benefit from this food source when mature and it is widely spread throughout our countryside.

What an attractive plant this is however I have to say that it is at its best in autumn when it has '' turned '' .


  1. I have to say that I like the teasel in the summer over it's winter appearance.

  2. Interesting Doug, I prefer the winter look but either way it a great friend to our bird species .... we all see things in a different light.
