Ouch!

I do not know what this plant is called. I haven’t yet looked it up, either. But I do recognize it now!

DO NOT TOUCH!!

DO NOT TOUCH!!

Unsolicited advice: Do not brush up against it with your bare ankle or leg. Do not drag your forearm across it when picking flowers. And definitely do NOT sit on it when taking photos! Actually, avoid sitting on it in any situation 😉

 

Happy First Day of Autumn!

The summer was so dry in Oklahoma that we were worried we wouldn’t have any leaves left by autumn.

You can see for yourself, there are still a few leaves, especially on tough trees like these Hackberries. Wait! There is a hackberry tree growing around and above this one, but these leaves are those of the native wild plum.
