Kirkstall teasels

There is a fantastic patch of sharp spiky teasels near the hedgerow of the abandoned allotments just off Queenswood Drive. Backlit with a hint of early morning light. Teasels are a good plant for butterflies during the flowering season and a good source of winter food for goldfinch. Over at our allotment, a stones throw or two away I spotted 15 Goldfinch (collectively known as a charm) in the hedgerow.

  1. I managed to get hold of a seed head a while ago and scattered some seed in the wilder part of my garden in the hopes one or two will grow. I can vouch as to how painful even the heads are to handle.
