    (Being a Scottish lass living and working in London, the thought of a traditional wedding for me still conjures up fond memories of proud men in kilts, thistles and heather as buttonholes, a slap-up sit-down meal followed by speeches, and inevitably a good old fashioned ceilidh afterwards, with a proper band of specially selected musicians always up for the challenge.)

    This is why I asked what a thistle was. Thistles and heather as buttonholes? We have thistles, as in weeds here in Canada, too. They are a real nuisance especially when they make their way to the garden.
