POTD: One Man’s Trash…

One Man’s Trash…
Bozeman, Montana
2011

Thistles are considered a noxious weed in Montana and you’re supposed to eradicate them if they grow on your property. I don’t do that on our land though because I’m cheap, lazy and adverse to blanketing the area (and potentially myself) with pesticides. Besides, try telling all the mountain bluebirds that flock here for the thistle seeds in the fall that they really ought to be better food connoisseurs than to think dining on noxious weeds is a treat.
