Been doing some googling and the only thing I could find coming close was a cardoon thistle which leafs are eatable.They didnt look as smooth/ soft as yours tho and maybee a bit cheewy for my like.I keep looking at the colours here and the head.Looks almost touchable..
Interesting – I followed up your google too, the Cardoon Thistle is – Artichoke based (a large bulbous head) – if you follow the link from that page to Thistle page there is an image to a seeding thistle – which is a means of spreading it’s seed by the wind – here is the link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thistle either way it is a beautiful sight – I am very pleased with the quality even minus a macro lens for the job.
yes,thats the link..it has also been painted by Van Gogh..;-) so its beaty has been captured way before you and i bet he didnt have a macrolens either..You work more then okay with what you have at the moment…patience
what a furry little plant
