The Flower of Scotland

Does our Scottish national flower represent the Scottish character - spreading out wildly as a prickly weed, clinging on stubbornly wherever it can, proving an annoyance to many but offering a rough reward in some ways, to those who are prepared to try to like it?

Ha ha John. I pulled the funny wobbly plastic eye stickers off of the supposedly amusing Father's Day card from my daughter (the eyes having belonged to a handsome old gorilla on the card) and lodged them in my eye sockets (as seemed appropriate). Only problem was I couldn't see how I looked in the mirror because... well, I had to get a photo taken to see, you see? I hope you do not have a disturbed evening.
