Flower very useful Carlina

Author 'Perronnet Catherine' (Id 237107 ) : During a hike in the Hérault, I met with several specimens (end of flowering), this beautiful flower is a carline with sheets of acanthus, also called cardabelle. Formerly this plant was very useful : you ate his heart edible, its prickly leaves were used for carding the wool of sheep and it was used as a barometer : its flower head closes to announce the wrong time, we meet again, nailed on the doors of the houses in St Guilhem le Desert, for example.

Thank you for your interest, for me photography is a way of discovering things.

I know this flower of the field, I saw St Guilhem and other villages, on doors, local crafts they make pottery, but I didn't know that the heart was edible !
Thank You Catherine !

You know everything on the carline so now, but I've encountered rather in the small mountains of the ardèche department and in the fields.

Hello Catherine, thank you for having responded to me, you're probably right, it may be higher than average altitude ; two years ago, the ns went in the Ardèche, and I do not remember to have seen it, but I'll add that to the Hérault river, the people the nails on their doors to ward off the bad spells ! Is saying...

Thou hast taught me once again to appreciate certain flowers... I would have taken this carline for a 'vulgar' thistle, a bit larger than the ones I have wont work with. Thank you for having raised this 'thorny' issue in botany and knew how to prick my curiosity with this photo of fall that reminds me of a sun declining.

A big thank you for your interest in this plant is as beautiful as it was useful finally.

I have essentially encountered this 'carline' in the mountains I knew that it was hung on the doors but I didn't know why Thank you for the explanations and this beautiful shot to the hues in shades of beige and brown

We were hiking in the Ardèche, on average mountain, down to 800/1000m. It is a beautiful plant, original and has various uses. Thank you for your loyalty Mady.

Hello Mady, In the Hérault region of france, these flowers are nailed to doors to ward off the bad spells it seems !!!

What is with this big flower is that even faded it remains photogenic. Thanks for your passage.

They are impressive by their size and very decorative. Thank you, thank you.

I remember this flower encountered during a vacation, there is a very long time and sometimes it was dried and nailed to the doors of the houses in some villages. A beautiful shot and a nice comment

I've seen several nailed on the doors : they are used as barometers because, even in the dry, they still work. Thank you for your visit.
> Almarie [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Oct 10, 2017
Thanks for the explanations on this flower, ultimate in its natural environment. It must be so beautiful when it is in his best form.

Totally agree with you, but I would never go to the Ardeche in the summer ! Thanks for your passage.
> Manu [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Oct 10, 2017
A nice photo of this flower dry and thank you for all these explanations (TB)

Thank you, thank you Manu. When I did the hike it was already the fall, so I have not seen the flower in full life, but given its size, at the full flowering period, it must make pretty spots of colors in the mountain.

Great photo with interesting commentary, this beautiful flower that I've never encountered in nature. TB+.

For me it was a first time Ninik : I think that it takes special conditions to push it. Apparently, she loves very hot climates, regions, a bit mineral and arid and drought he is not afraid of. Thank you for your visit.
> Jofu [G] [P] [C] [F] >Reply Oct 09, 2017
for the color of the subject and thank you for the photo submission. With the photo, we always learn something at each one of your publications . We now know all of the carline with sheets of acanthus, but where should you place the hands to grab it ?

See Joel, it's like to make soup of nettles, it is necessary gloves.

Thank you for your passage from Joel ; I asked the same question as you. I have the impression that they are detached from the soil with a knife like you do with the dandelions, because it is really plated on the earth.
