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.
