Dangerous Beauty

That which is striking and beautiful is not always good,
but that which is good is always beautiful.
~Ninon de L'Enclos

We saw this lovely thistle on our nature walk today.
Before I could give warning....one of my daughters grabbed hold~
Drawn in by its beauty~ unaware of its danger.

Love the last line, "drawn by its beauty, unaware of its danger"....they are so beautiful, but have spiky surface. The butterflies near me seem to love them though!
