The registration name is actually for 'Jim Bowie'; however, I couldn't resist throwing in that thorny picture for emphasis! Hilarious!

Here's the bloom of ultra thorny Mont Blanc. Smiling

I had seen that thread, yes. Whistling Looking at that first picture always makes me grimace and shudder! I do kind of like the bigger thorns better, though; at least they don't (as easily) get in under the skin and break off, leaving a festering wound behind. Those prickers, I guess they're called (???)(long and very thin, but penetrating) give me fits! They're hard to get hold of when you're digging them out of yourself.

I'm weeding around Mont Blanc now, and have no great wounds yet... Rolling on the floor laughing ...in time I will, I suppose.
