Thistle Tim

Thistle Tim is a sweet and playful thistle flower. Tim might have scary looking thistles, but he never stung anybody. He is really friendly and just loves to make new friends. When the weather gets colder, Tim puts on his thick scarf to keep him nice and warm and he goes out to play with his friends. They run around in the snow and have a lot of fun. Thistle Tim loves sledding, that always puts a smile on his face. When he goes really fast, he can feel the wind between his thistles. He wishes he could invite everybody to go sledding with him and be his friend.
