Blue-bottle and auger ‘flower’ with Scotch thistle

Vignette with blue-bottle and ship-building auger ‘flower’ and Scotch thistle (Onopordum acanthium), the greyish plants in the foreground. The Scotch thistle is only supposed to be hardy to Zone 6, but three plants I grew from seed a few years ago have seeded themselve around pretty well. But that’s OK, I love them.
