A Beautiful Thistle

I was so excited today when I saw the courier man coming up the path!  He was holding a large parcel which could only be the print of a photo I took whilst away in the summer.  I quickly unwrapped it, I couldn't wait.  It looks just as amazing as I thought it would.  Here's a photo of it hanging in the family room above my newly re-upholstered, beautiful chairs. (Note:  the family walls are actually green and the colours of the picture are much brighter in person).

Who would have thought that an ordinary old thistle could look so beautiful.  Do you like it?
