It was a windy day and the long piece of dry grass was in front of the thistle head. I have spent a bit of time moving it behind with some pushing and cloning. Not very expertly. I just liked the contrast of the purple against the water colour. It has sat in my bin of many failures for a long time :)

A lovely floral composition, perfectly presented, Lyn. Not worthy to keep it in the bin any longer. You're talking about 'failures' too, but when I see this result, to me it's a mystery where you're talking about, 😁 !

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

The detail on the thistle head is terrific - certainly no failure here perhaps just not you saw in your minds eye!

Like our thistle here in the upper U.S. brilliant color.
