One of the favorite flower of the Japanese people.
It is also sung in some old song.

  1. Cultures are interesting…you say these are the favorites of old people? I remember having to pul these out of the pasture as they were considered a noxious weed when I was growing, and yet in another culture, Scotts, they are a symbol of the country.

    I’d be curious about the song and what it says about the thistle.

    • In our country we call the thistle flowers as “Azami”.
      The old song of this flower is “Azami no uta (Song of thistle)”.
      You can listen this song at youtube.

      Human’s mind – who is not happiness, but people who live strongly – in this song, it is likened to a thistle flower.
      And “thistle”, as seen in the Japanese culture, I will introduce a photograph.
