    Love the patterns on the leaves themsleves and as for the thorns would not like toget too close to them. These images would make a lovey series of garden cards of a calender for a gardener.

  • Thanks so much, Karen! There is something about them that makes me want to touch them!! Good idea on the calendar… must look for a few others in my file! Cheers, luv! ♥
