Purple thistle with bumble bee at Brightside Farm Park

"Purple thistle with bumble bee" During my daily walks, I often come across small things that catch my eye. This purple thistle was the only one of its kind as far as I could see. It was vibrant and Dr. Seuss-like. Upon closer inspection, I saw that it was sheltering a bumble bee. It felt like a very innocent, sweet picture.
