FINAL Vacation Photos -- Flora edition

Warning: No Corgi Content.

I promise, these are the FINAL vacation photos.
I love thistles.  I like saying the word.  I wonder if it has anything to do with the fact that I have a lisp.
My nieces, nephews and sister-in-law were in Scotland when we were in the San Juan Islands.  Scotland has thistles, too!
Loch Ness has thistles, too!
These thistles were growing in San Juan Park on San Juan Island.
California poppies in Friday Harbor, San Juan Island.
The docent at the Orcas Island Museum knew a lot about the history of the island, but wasn't sure about the name of this allium.
Hollyhocks, I believe. Growing wild all over Orcas Island above a certain elevation.
Leaves of three?
Did I mention I like thistles?

Very nice pictures! You look like you were dressed for winter!

We have thistles, too, all around the neighborhood lake.
