Thistle flower

never have I seen a flower like this on the thistle  the whole plant it seems has grown in a couple of weeks  in the most arid of land  The only thing I can think how it gets its moisture is from the banana tree stumps left in the ground the trees  were taken down a few months ago,  the Nile is at a 20 ft lower level.

this is the area the cattle egret used to take twigs from  for nest building ,
