Photographer's Note

This one is a view of an old wooden door taken from a vaulted porch in St Guilhem le Desert. You can remark that a plant is hanged to the door. This is a kind of thistle kown as carlina acaulis, or "barometer". Effectively, when the weather is good, the plant opens widely its leafs (as it is the case on the photograph), and when comes a rainy day, it closes all. People believe that it works also when the plant is dead and hanged to the door of a house.
I'm not sure of that, but what is sure is that this plant is now a nice protected specie and that it's better seen in natural conditions than on anybody's door...
