Le Chardon d'Écosse Australien

Le, Chardon d'Écosse, (ou le chardon aux ânes), est une grande plante épineuse, assez commune en terrain calcaire dans toute l'Europe centrale.
Cependant, en Australie il peut indiquer la présence de sol de fondation qui n'est pas approprié pour construire une maison sur.
(Je crois que je peux entendre le son de quelques cornemuses flottant par l'air!! )

The Scotch Thistle, (or Donkey Thistle), is a big prickly plant, rather common in the calcareous soils of central Europe. However, in Australia it may indicate the presence of foundation soil which is not appropriate to construct a home on.

I think that I can hear the sound of bagpipes floating through the air !

Spectacular plants but such a pest here in the wide brown land.Maybe the band of pipers will crush the thistles underfoot!

Hi Cabacurl,
This shot is one of a series taken by my friend Rob, on his voyage of discovery up the whole East Coast, recently. Hence the label "Schaussengraben", bottom right of the photo. Click on this label / link and you will see all shots that he has either taken or has edited for me.
I must ask him if he took any shots at Cabarita Beach. In any event, he will see this comment and he will probably tell me first.

Maybe the band of pipers should be up your way, piping the whales as they frolic along.

You must all click on Cabacurl's link in blue, above, to see a most spectacular display of whales.

I saw a lot of Scotch Thistles, when I was little girl, on vacation in Berry, when I was walking on the sandbanks of the Loire River but at that time I did not think that thistle has this name.
