PaintingsPosted by Debbie Craddock 08 Aug, 2019 20:31
This plant is a herb related to the daisy family. An extract from the milk thistle seeds can be used to treat diseases relating to the liver.

These thistles grow several feet tall and the spikes on the sepals surrounding the flower and on the leaves are razor sharp.
