Day 102 - Thistles


Gorgeous warm day here! Took my baby girl to the park and then went for a walk around the lake. The flowers, the ducks, the dogs and their walkers were all soaking up the sunshine.

So pretty! Our thistles haven't even begun to grow yet, let alone bloom! I can't wait until they are covered with butterflies and bees! :)
