Yesterday I took advantage of having some extra hands at home and we did a little clean up in the front woods. All of these trees had fallen and many were quite brittle. In addition to moving the fallen trees we had to tangle with vines. Most of these vines were honeysuckle, Japanese honeysuckle, a good vine to be rid of.
While moving one of the trees we were getting scratched and pricked.....after we put the tree on the pile I went back to see what was jabbing us. Looks like some kind of Hawthorn, since it is a very small shrub, it is hard to tell what kind. Check out those thorns!!
Here's to hoping everyone is free of thorny issues in the new year! Happy New Year everyone!
