Scottish Images

I found this Scottish thistle in my yard this morning.What did it make me think of when I saw this symbol of my Scottish heritage?

Did I have images of Celtic crosses in crumbling walled church yards or tartan clad men wielding large broadswords in the heather? Pipers ghostly sounds carrying across fields?
Or did I think of working with my border collies to move woolly sheep on the misty hillsides of the land of my ancestors?No. I was thinking that Scott better repair my lawn mowers 'cause the yard is getting out of control.

Then once he is finished with your thistle he can come over and deal with ours!
