Sony Cyber Shot DSC H3
April 2011

After taking a closer look at this seemingly unsuspecting plant, I saw those thorns that mean business if you were to get too close. Ouch!

It is my hope to always bring out something good and positive in all that I do! Despite our outward differences of faith, religion, culture, or even global location, one thing we all as humans embrace is a sense of acceptance, and belonging. Our art is an expression of who we are and a language that needs no words. It is my hope that my work depicts all that is loving and positive in which to edify others. I give all my thanks to my God who has uniquely and wonderfully created us in His image.

    Don’t hold me to this…but maybe a type of Solanum…the Nightshade family? Reminds me of Buffalo Bur, Solanum rostratum…..starts low but will grow upwards where the stems AND leaves are all prickly.

  • I do believe these do grow taller, these were just getting started but looked deadly already! Sounds good to me Carla!
