This photo got me thinking. First of all, I never realized until this spring that thistles are composites, just like sunflowers. Secondly, I’m fascinated that the small, yet-to-bloom flowers in the center of thistles are in the same pattern as those in the center of sunflowers. It occurs to me that this is one of the patterns of life.
