Eryngium campestre aka Field Eryngo

This plant is very thorny. I didn't get hurt, but some people get hurt when they walk on fields without looking to the ‘'floor’' lol.




''Let me breathe the truth.
Won't bow to men.
Won't bow to government.
Won't bow to greed.
Won't bow to false hope.
Won't bow to self.
Won't bow to modern code.
Won't sell my soul to a dead world. I defy.''

Nesta altura, Portugal, com esta política, está cheio de espinhos, e dos grandes! LOL E magoam muito mais do que esses aí, que até são muito bonitos.

Ouch, they definitely look like they would hurt if you stepped on them! I like the second one best.

Great Lyrics!
Oh, a kiss on the serpent's head.
We walk in the line of deceit, the walking dead.
Can't you feel the ground of our discretion giving way?
Refusal of hope, solution demise.
Bury the truth in a mountain of lies.

Beautiful photos - beautiful prose! There may be thorns, but look at the loveliness surrounding them!
Thanks for the nice note on my "chapel" post, Ricky.
