Slogan, Thistles and Woodland Structure

Spotted this slogan on a car parked outside and thought I should share it (and my inadvertent self-portrait).
Tried to drive up to Westonbirt for a walk with Bella but ran into a traffic jam leading up to the motorway, so we manged to detour back towards Bath and Brockham End where we saw this structure.
It's giant thistle time up there. Prickly on the outside, but soft once the flowers emerge. 
It's also burdock flowering time - very popular with the bees. 
It was very clear looking south and west. 
This day a year ago, bees were still much in evidence - this one on our giant nepeta.
