Seeds in flight

A "Simply" Extra
Sow thistle is a tall weed with spiky leaves and yellow dandelion-like flowers.  On a recent walk I came upon a single plant growing on the north side of the berm that surrounds our property.  While normally I might have just passed it by, I happened to pass the sow thistle just as its seeds were taking flight.  There was beauty to be seen in the fluffy white parachutes, each bearing the beginnings of a new plant.
