Mystical Thistles

Mystical Thistles

Twist their silver

Bristles.

Sycamore keys

Kiss in seed

Filled mists.

Fairies in gilded rickshaws

Ride at a lick on

Chamomile lawns:

Admired by

Nymphs

Tooting silver

Horns.

Victorian town Parks such as this one near the stunning Embankment in Bedford, Β offer beautiful borders along pathways Β to explore, abundant with nature, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Β I enjoyed a lazy summer afternoon here with a friend after a leisurely lunch. I expect these thistles will appear in my design work soon! Β πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Cybele. The Embankment is always picturesque, with a continental feel. I love watching the rowing boats going past. Next year Bedford has a River festival, which apparently is spectacular.
      I hope you have a lovely day. πŸ™‚
