The Milk Thistle, as many of you know is a critter magnet. Birds, bees and butterflies always seem to migrate to this plant. Beside its sweet nectar, each flower head produces about 190 seeds, with an average of 6,350 seeds per plant. Considered a real menace and troublesome weed, the milk thistle is an ancient medicinal plant used to purify and protect the liver as early as 23-79 AD. Milk thistle positively affects all forms of liver disease. Any ways… I like’m because they many times give me photo opportunities like what you see here. Oh… And my last post also.
