How Far Have We Walked Cookie? Scotland?

Thistle & Bee

NickyThere’s thistles and gorse all over the land of kiwi. Been wondering if they were imported by all the Scottish settlers? And if so, why?? Why fill your new colony with all the spikiest possible plants from back home. Or is it possible that both plants evolved before the continents separated ? Who knows. But this is the kind if thing you ponder when your brain is put into isolation for days on end!

    Limosa lapponica can fly straight from Alaska, with plants in her suitcases.
