I often see the little bees wings starting to get old and worn
and wonder on the thistles, do they perhaps sometimes
damage them ? it's sad to think they might, as of course
they cannot replace them ... once they cannot fly that's
their life over and ;-) do bees have a predetermined
type of flower that they stay with ? hehe . . . just a
thought ... I guess we will never know will we ;-)

I think bees and other insects do love thistles !! White ones, pink ones they all attract insects very much !! Don't know why !!! Maybe someone will give us the answer on Ipernity ??? Have a nice day, Bev !!!!
