7 Thistle Images
Today we have a beautiful collection of Thistle Images! Several of the images featured below are Botanical Prints of various types of wild Thistles. I love how different each one is! Also included are a few black and white illustrations. There is a strikingly pretty Thistle Image! I think it would be nice if used for a Scottish themed project! We have a Thistle that is in bloom with a Butterfly from an early Natural History book. One is a nice Vintage Thistle Drawing of a bunch of Thistle Flowers along with their prickly Leaves! This would be lovely to use on so many different projects, or a very nice design motif for your Handmade creations!
Thistle Botanical Images
Here is the latest addition to this collection. Featured here is a cute Botanical Illustration of a short and stalky looking Thistle. The Thistly part is a bit wider than most, but it does have the purple flower on top that you most often see.
Pictured above is a colorful Thistle floral graphic from a vintage 1859 Botanical Book! One of the buds has bloomed into a lovely purple flower that almost looks as if it is suspended in midair! The other bud appears to be ready to bloom any minute. Such an interesting picture!
Featured here is another nice Botanical graphic from the same 1859 Book! Shown above is a type of wild Thistle plant, which is a member of the Daisy family. The symmetry of the purple flowers surrounded by a pinkish colored center is quite lovely.
Here we have another lovely wild Thistle plant Botanica! This one has pink star-like flowers in a circular pattern at the top of the plant’s stem. The petals of the individual flowers create a pattern similar to the look of a starfish!
Black and White Thistle Clipart
Featured above is a Public Domain Thistle Image! Shown is a striking black and white image of a rather primitive looking Thistle Flower Engraving. There is an interesting “swirly” patterned symmetry to the illustration. This one was scanned from a rare Antique Printer’s book that dates to around Circa 1880′s.
This is a beautiful black and white Butterfly image from an early Natural History book. These two pretty insects appear to be resting on a Thistle that is in bloom. I love the intricate detail of the thistle and butterflies. A color image of this one would be interesting to see. This one is truly quite splendid!
