Love coming back to Tower Hill near Warrnambool VIC by greens_pics

Scotch Thistle found at Tower Hill. Onopordum Acanthium is the Latin name for thistles and is derived from the Greek onus meaning donkey and porde meaning flatulence because it was believed that donkeys farted more after eating these plants. Acanthium is from the Greek acantho meaning spiny. Scotch Thistle because it is the origin of the Scottish emblem but is surprisingly rare in Scotland. Has been listed as a noxious weed in Victoria since 1856. Now we know.  #plants #weeds #ScotchThistle…

Thankfully not as we now know it. Tower Hill has been given a new lease of life thanks to a forward-thinking restoration project and is now a beautiful well-treed sanctuary for our natural wildlife. We have spent many hours amongst the many trees along the meandering walking trails.  This photograph is taken from 'The Australian Countryside in Pictures' released by the Herald & Weekly Times (1951?). #towerhill #victoria #australia #countryside #photography #oldphotographs #pasture…
