Crazy Purple Flowers

 I love these crazy purple flowers.

I don't know what they are called - maybe someone can tell me the comments? I love that they look like purple powder puffs. 

These over sized dandelion looking flowers tower over the other early spring arrivals in Chicago, swaying around in the breeze & seemingly really enjoying their short lived lives.

Goodness knows I enjoy them!


  1. I love these too! They are called "Globe Thistles" and need lots of sun :) They are perennials that can grow up to 5 feet tall!!
