These weeds have gotten away from me this year. I’ve tried to pull them or cut them down. Even with gloves, they hurt me so I decided to let them be.
Thistles have thorns to keep destruction away. They do best when unharmed. Trust me, you do not want to touch a thistle.
When they are given the chance to grow without being destroyed by human hands, they eventually bloom into beautiful purple flowers.
Some people are thistles. We have to let them be and allow them to grow. Stop trying to pull them because they don’t fit in your garden.
